OK, I'll apply these unmodified.  If egg users disagree with your choices, you 
can later revisit these, or perhaps make a 'lite' and 'full' pair, if such a 
thing is possible.

The win32 installer puts the manual with a link in the start menu, and the 
*nix ones do put the docs and manpages in the proper places (/usr/share/doc). 
  Did you remove them altogether?  What happens if someone installs the egg 
and they want to read the manual?  Do they need to go online?

Cheers,
