[Numpy-discussion] Compiling for free on Windows32

You actually need the package unpacked to use scipy.weave and make C
extensions which use Numpy's .h files. 

We have found that Numpy + Scipy are perfectly zip-safe for users but
not for developers.

You're welcome.

Since I am not an egg user myself, I wonder whether it would be useful
to make numpy zip-safe ? Can it be done without numpy relying on
setuptools, or do we have to use setuptools for pkg_resources (maybe
pkg_resources can be used without using the whole setuptools machinery
