The theory is that pysetuptools look into the egg files for
information about installed packages.  It can be thought of as the
Python equivalent of SONAMEs (kind of).  pysetuptools might look into
the egg files to figure out the versions of installed packages.  If
the egg files are missing, pysetuptools think that the package is not
installed, and they throw an errors.

Trying the package from experimental would test this theory.  Can you do that?
