Oh, well then maybe we don't need egg support. That's good.

However, I also just realizd that bundleman currently uses the pattern
of having a CHANGES file, and a HISTORY file and a VERSION file, and
then massaging them and renaming them to CHANGES.txt HISTORY.txt and
version.txt when used, and I think we still would need some change to
support calling the files CHANGES.txt directly, or updating all the
eggs might be a bit much work. (Unless we make a script for that).

But it is a very good tool for making releases. It also has this nice
support for releasing all the products in a whole svn-bundle, if they
need releasing, which is very nice.
