I would describe it as "broken", since you should be able to upgrade 
directly with ez_setup.py.  I would appreciate it if you could verify the 
fixes I just checked in, by removing the setuptools development eggs for 
41761 and later versions, then using ez_setup.py to reinstall the dev 
version while the older setuptools is in use.

That fix isn't quite correct, at least not for Python 2.3, but I've added 
something similar now.  So, both problems should now be fixed in SVN.
