New submission from David Lyon <david.lyon at preisshare.net>:

Under Windows, it would be very handy to have shell support for
installing .EGG packages.

To implement this would require the addition of some registry keys into
the cpython installation to associate the .EGG extension as being a
python package.

Then a new script would be assigned to process the .EGG file if called
from explorer.

This would provide the user with the ability to easily install packages
from web sites such as pypi.
