How is installation with an egg easier than having a single file macro?

Replying to rjollos:

How is installation with an egg easier than having a single file macro?

Once I was maintaining a trac project and to get it going several trac eggs had to be installed. Since all plugins+macros were eggs, I just copied and pasted from the documentation. And it looked very neat (installing directly from trac-hacks, too).

But the main reason for me was that I was trying to get a community? project going on And since the only easy way to add functionality to their trac instances is by egg file uploads. It needed to be an egg.

Of course an egg would be harder to "cook" as well, but at the time I wanted to get the learning experience, too.

I know I am not answering your question, but I am sure it makes sense now. :)

Its funny because several people have asked me to generate eggs for single file plugins that I maintain, and I always ask what the advantage is because really, I just don't know. No one every replies though. I'd be completely in favor of creating eggs for single file plugins, but I can't think of a reason that it would be an advantage if the plugin has no dependencies.

Thanks for the feedback!
