.egg files should be treated like .zip files
easy_install -Z ..., packages can be installed without extracting them from their source. These may be .zip files or .egg files (for example,
easy_install -Z feedparser), but we currently only support .zip files.
As far as I know, there are no differences between the files except the extensions (and occasionally the association), so we should treat both of them the same.
