I'm trying to understand why this was needed at all, as grokproject sets 
up a shared eggs directory for you by itself, after all. Is it because 
that eggs directory is in Documents and Settings and do the spaces in 
the path names lead to problems? If so that is a bug we should at least 
investigate - perhaps there's a simple fix. Alternatively we should 
change the location of the eggs directory entirely on Windows by default.
