Part of my motivation in maintaining this tracker is to take issue  
discussions from IRC, and from mailing lists, and make them more  
permanent and structured.  This part is useful even for rejected  
proposals, as an historical record that other people interested in  
those issues can consult.

I will mark those two tickets as "rejected by PJE".  Could you please  
repeat (so that I don't misrepresent you due to my faulty memory of  
our IRC discussion from more than a year ago) your reason for  
rejecting these two:

http://allmydata.org/trac/setuptools/ticket/4 (when considering  
whether to zip, err on the side of safety rather than performance)

http://allmydata.org/trac/setuptools/ticket/5 (binary eggs should  
come with .py files by default, rather than .pyc files)

You are of course welcome to log in to that trac and update those  
tickets yourself, but if you prefer not to then I will paste your  
reasons into those tickets.
