Not a no-brainer at all. The current system is pretty simple. That's a
feature. I don't even want to think about the previous system, which
was really fragile and more complicated. So, avoiding complexity is
something I find really important.

I like the idea of tgz-submission (did John suggest it? I can't
remember, it's already 60 seconds later). How about a central store
that accepts tgz's and external clients, that keep their own
infrastructure (and DVCS's), who regularly pull repos from the actual
contributors and have a simple tool to upload the egg? That way we
could decouple the DVCS->Egg process from the infrastructure that
stores and serves the egg.
