I noticed that

python setup.py install --prefix=/usr/local

installs a new file called numpy-1.0.5.dev4445.egg-info. It used to be
that files were only installed in

What is the file used for?

$ cat /usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/numpy-1.0.5.dev4445.egg-info
Metadata-Version: 1.0

Description: NumPy is a general-purpose array-processing package designed to
        efficiently manipulate large multi-dimensional arrays of arbitrary
        records without sacrificing too much speed for small multi-dimensional
        arrays.  NumPy is built on the Numeric code base and adds features
        introduced by numarray as well as an extended C-API and the ability to
        create arrays of arbitrary type which also makes NumPy suitable for
        interfacing with general-purpose data-base applications.

        There are also basic facilities for discrete fourier transform,
        basic linear algebra and random number generation.
