starting a new thread, but this is related to the setuptols-_lite
discussion, and the legacy formats discussion. In another thread Donald had

So I'm wondering -- does anything else (other than setuptools) depend on
eggs in any way? I know why I pip install stuff, I (always?) get egg-ish
directories and all that. Honestly, I'm confused -- is that making an
actual egg? or is that name simply a legacy name for package meta data?
In any case, does pip, or anything else, require it?
For my part, I find it annoying, name aside -- it seems that all the
package meta-data should be there in the package source already
