I haven't heard nothing but harsh criticism around "eggs", but I must
admit I have never used them. Most Python software I've seen is
distributed via the usual setup.py / *nix packages / Windows installers.
All three are easy and standard.
What are the advantages of eggs? Where can I find info about them? Can a
software redistributed with eggs play well (i.e. be repackaged) with
Linux packaging or Windows installers?
