My fault.  The eggs in question were (a) broken (doctests with
inconsistent line endings causing test module import failures) and (b)
unnecessrary (the eggs had no extension modules inside).  I asked on IRC
whether removing binary eggs from PyPI would be bad, given that there's
a source distribution for the same version, and nobody brought up
zope.org's index.

Well, now I know.  Previously I thought only removing whole released
versions from PyPI was bad.
