Can you put an egg in a mpkg?

I don't quite follow. Are you suggesting that we don't put any eggs on
pythonmac? If so, then we do put non-egg packages there? I am concerned
that that will just confuse the users more. I'd really like to be able
to tell people: go to this place, and all available packages for Python
on OS-X are there.
