No, you didn't misinterpret my post, but according to Bob, you could 
easily upload the eggs directly to cheeseshop -- why not do that?

Another issue is that the Cheeseshop interface could use some work, as 
it wasn't the least bit clear that that magic could occur.

And the third, is that on the sourceforge download page, I didn't see an 
OS-X egg. I was about to poke through the MPL list and see what you said 
about this, but I guess I'll just try:  'easy_install matplotlib' and 
see what happens.

This is all a bit of a mess now, but it looks very promising, and I 
think Bob has convinced me: For any package I need, I'll try to build an 
egg, and try to get it uploaded to cheeseshop.
