Well, it may be a vestige from setuptools and I don't know if it's still needed/appropriate, but distribute scans the pyc modules to try to see whether stuff is zip_safe or not when you run `python bdist_egg`:

Personally, I always set zip_safe to True as I find zipped distributions to be a pain in the butt, but not all distributions out there always set it and currently `python bdist_egg` (and probably other commands?) bombs on such packages.

We should probably get Tarek to weigh in here.
