Reading those questions convinced me that we are not ready for an egg-based 
release. The overhead for the release manager is far too great. even with the 
simple approach it took about 0.5-1 day; I would think it takes more than 
that now.

I think we need some tools for this first. something that allows us to say: 
for packages x, y, and z do the following: Create a tag, change setup.py, and 
then create the egg. If we do not have this tool, every release will be a 
major pain.
