"eggs" are wonderful for no-hassle get-all-the-dependencies.  However,
they can trigger hands-off downloads from various sites.  This is Bad
News for corporate environments in which every download is carefully

A tarball with a subdirectory of "third_party" packages is ok.  A web
page simple listing the third party sites and the recommended
downloads is ok.  Automatically downloading is not ok.

Is there some way in the eggs mechanism to just get a list of the
proposed downloads, and let the user take the actions manually?
