getsource is 2 lines of code, and getsourcelines (called by getsource) another 
2.  We just need to get the actual lines of source, which I suppose requires 
reading inside the egg (it's a zip archive, right?) and pulling the contents 
of the file out.

It sounds relatively straightforward to me, but perhaps I'm missing something.
