I've created a small proposal to add egg support to zope.configuration:


Shouldn't the egg work as a package, so that you still can use the
package attribute?

If an egg installs a package and if the package isn't a namespace
package, and if the egg isn't zipped, then yes, the package mechanism
will work.

Or does egg magic only do that for python files?

Do what?

Because you then get the problem if you switch between an egg version
and a non-egg version of a module...

I don't know what you are getting at.

Supporting eggs explicitly will allow dealing with a number of situations:

- namespace packages (like zope.app)

- zipped eggs

- eggs with names that aren't the same as the names of
  packages they contain.

- Entry points.
