Platform dependent distributions are *not* portable. They can depend on system settings, such as Python Unicode size and library locations. This can cause major annoyance and breakage when people automatically download these with easy_install or zc.buildout.


The only platform we should do this for is Windows.

I just removed several platform-dependent eggs from download.zope.org.
