Hm, interesting. I thought I had seen something like that, but I've
never been able to find documentation for it. Do you know where this
is documented? Does this example actually work?

I wonder what that should mean.

I agree that something like this would be useful. I would like to
see the semantics spelled out. For example, I agree that this should
lead to a develop egg. What version should it have? Should that
be determined by the remote setup.py file? Is the project you point
to required to have a setup.py file? If so, then why specify a
project name after the #.
