> Hello everyone,
> Are there *good* reasons to use uncompressed eggs?
Plenty. Mostly that some things simply don't work in compressed eggs. See
the zipsafe-flag in setuptools-docs.
> Is there a, say, performance penalty in using compressed eggs?
Not that it matters I'd say - only if you had an application that imports a
lot & runs very short time.
