    "eggs" are wonderful for no-hassle get-all-the-dependencies. However,
    they can trigger hands-off downloads from various sites. This is Bad
    News for corporate environments in which every download is carefully
    pre-approved.

    A tarball with a subdirectory of "third_party" packages is ok. A web
    page simple listing the third party sites and the recommended
    downloads is ok. Automatically downloading is not ok.

    Is there some way in the eggs mechanism to just get a list of the
    proposed downloads, and let the user take the actions manually?

    that is not implemented yet, also you may want to take this to the
    distutils-sig list.

    what you can do is read the egg's setup.py for it's dependencies, but
    this can turn into something like red hat's dep hell.
