I had hoped the gsub would work and
would be sufficient.

Do all distutils eggs look like ${PYSITELIB}/${EGG_FILE} ?
Then we could add a ${PYDISTUTILS_EGG} line in PLIST, which would get
replaced with a @comment for python2.4 and with the proper filename
for newer pythons. What do you think of that?
