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. > It would be great if someone could re-upload the eggs to PyPI. > > More importantly, this is a reminder to please not remove eggs.
