I do -- but my setuptools doesn't come with egg.  Go figure.

You may want something along these lines (worked for me)

    from setuptools import setup as old_setup
    from setuptools.command import bdist_egg
    have_setuptools = 1
except ImportError:
    from distutils.core import setup as old_setup
    have_setuptools = 0

Thanks for the help,
