.. and the eggs would be dependent upon CPU archtecture (SSE2 or not,
can the asm speedups be used or not, and maybe on the C++ ABI?), which I
don't think is captured in the setuptools version string. Providing eggs
like this needs to come with instructions on how to avoid using them if
they don't work, and preferably some tests somewhere to find out.
