Well, we're NOT going to have scripts under *nix with .py extensions.  Nobody 
in a *nix box is going to have to type


at a command line to start ipython.  I'm happy supporting eggs, as long as 
they follow the proper conventions of each platform.  If they don't, this 
should be reported as an egg bug, but we're not going to break a standard of 
the *nix platform.
