Actually, there is, although it is not really an egg deficiency. We
use ATLAS as blas/lapack, and ATLAS binaries are tuned for one
architecture. So we have a so called superpack binary installer which
contains several binaries, selects the best one on a given computer,
and installs it.

setuptools and eggs are different things - the egg file format is
fine, and should not cause any instability whatsoever compared to a
normal binary install.
