multiple sets of files may already be possible with multiple component forms in 
the .egg, but installation into any nested subdirectories relative to the 
CHICKEN installation prefix is currently not possible.

For example, some include files provided with the protocol buffers egg would 
technically have to be stored in certain subdirectories of the C include path 
(<include>/extend/protobuf/...) for the protocol buffer compiler to pick them 
up correctly. Currently I have to move those files around manually after
