I'll look into this when I get a chance.  I have trouble understanding how
easy_install works, since I've never used it as a client.  From the error
message it seems like it is trying to download the protobuf-2.1.0 full
package but expects it to contain only the Python sub-tree.  I have no idea
how easy_install even found out about protobuf-2.1.0.zip.
