That's changing the form of the egg files.

I think the other thing does is to depend on setuptools.  Perhaps
that should be added.

I do not expect extension to be deprecated.

If somebody wants to split egg into egg-with-build-for-one-egg and
egg-without-build-possibly multiple, and then reconsider this sort of
change, I'd say tech-pkg@ is open for proposals.

We can see if there's an explanation why not to revert in 24h.

Sort of separately, and partly because the world is too complicated,  I
would be inclined to add PYTHON_VERSIONS_INCOMPATIBLE=27 to xentools.  I
don't see any reason to build it with 2.7, and 2.7 ends up with
different versions of some things, like an ancient version of
setuptools, and that's just complexity we don't need.
