I agree that the egg-info file should be removed in 3.3, especially because distutils2 has a better way of specifying python version dependencies.

The OSX installers for 2.7, 3.1 and 3.2 should remove the egg-info file for older releases, that way we at least don't lie about the version.

IMO we cannot remove the egg-info for current releases, someone might depend on their existence and this is a minor enough nit to not risk breaking code.
