I think it was confusion from inexact wording in the original post.  I
knew what lmacken had been doing in Turbo* packages so I replied with
the idea that "egg files" meant these files inside the .egg-info
directory.  Meanwhile you took it to mean the zipped up PACKAGE.egg

In any case, it looks like TurboMail was approved and the cvs version
shows that it's including the .egg_info directory not the .egg files.

I think we're in agreement that this is the correct way to go?
