To help maintain the sanity of everyone building packages, can't we just
auto-generate these?  I know there's the old patch floating around
somewhere for python deps that we should be using but haven't yet
instituted.  And extending that to work with eggs also seems to make
sense.  And then we avoid everyone having to add stuff to their spec
