Are you aware that the reason numpy is not distributed as an .egg is so
that the installer can determine the correct architecture (no SSE, SSE,
SSE2) and install the appropriate files? This is not possible with .egg,
so you'll either have to ship the no SSE version or ensure that it will
be installed on only computers with the appropriate SIMD processor.
