Ick. That's a lot of "if"s...

I don't know what you are getting at.

Well, if you have to say "egg" when it's a zipped egg and "package"
when it's a package, then you can't support both at one time, which
means that to support the egg you have to use <include egg=".." /> and
then it stops working if it's not an egg. This is basically bad,
although I guess it's acceptable if these are very unusual
circumstances (which seems to be what people are saying further down
in this thread).
