I'm also more than willing to deal with eggs and easy-install, I would
even like to see the ability to add extensions/plugins to ipython via
eggs some day. Imagine the pleasure of saying to someone that they
just need to do

% easy_install ipython-pipe-filters

and start using the extension immediately (possibly without editing
any config files). Using a browser, sourceforge, unzipper etc. to get
stuff seems rather "unprofessional" in comparison. cpan was a great
booster for perl, easy_install, cheeseshop and eggs is about to do the
same to python.
