If you want to delete the currently installed version of a package (or all
versions of a package), you should first run::
 
    easy_install -m PackageName
    easy_install -mxN PackageName
 
This will ensure that Python doesn't continue to search for a package you're
planning to remove. After you've done this, you can safely delete the .egg

Release Notes/Change History
============================
 
0.6final
0.6c11
 * Fix installed script .exe files not working with 64-bit Python on Windows
   (wasn't actually released in 0.6c10 due to a lost checkin)
 
0.6c10
 * Fix easy_install.exe giving UAC errors on Windows Vista
 
 * Support for the most recent Sourceforge download link insanity
 
 * Stop crashing on certain types of HTTP error
 
 * Stop re-trying URLs that already failed retrieval once
 
 * Fixes for various dependency management problems such as looping builds,
   re-downloading packages already present on sys.path (but not in a registered
   "site" directory), and semi-randomly preferring local "-f" packages over
   local installed packages
 
0.6c9
 * Fixed ``win32.exe`` support for .pth files, so unnecessary directory nesting
   is flattened out in the resulting egg. (There was a case-sensitivity
   problem that affected some distributions, notably ``pywin32``.)
