[Numpy-discussion] Compiling for free on Windows32

Eggs are still beneficial:

* People who do not have access to PyPi can still use it (think banks)
* If you can build eggs easily then so can people like me... it becomes
easy to produce optimized eggs for all our Xeon processors. 
* Deploying an egg is nothing more than copying a file to the relevant
folder - it's fast and very reliable. Since we deploy to end-user's PCs
we need something that works very quickly. 

Making eggs is really really easy - the hard part is compiling the C++
stuff in Numpy reliably.

In that case, would a simple bdist_wininst-based installer available on
pypi be enough ? Or do eggs have other benefit compared to .exe ?
