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.
