This is an interesting problem.

easy_install identifies 
as some kind of package it can install - maybe a self-extracting zip?  I 
don't know - but that's not what it is.  This seems to be because the 
name matches the scheme setuptools uses for naming certain kinds of 
distribution files.

We presently are not distributing binary eggs for Windows, so 
easy_install isn't likely to be the best installation strategy anyway.
