Many python packages are now distributed as eggs. This is a single 'egg' file which I believe is the zipped package folder with some extra meta-data.

It would be really nice if epydoc could properly handle these eggs and generate the documentation for them. Right now it doesn't work. It just documents the stub zip loader that python uses to read the egg.

"epydoc.py -v -o sqlalchemy sqlalchemy" gives the following

Everything
All Functions
sqlalchemy.global_connect
All Variables
sqlalchemy.EXT_PASS
sqlalchemy.NULLTYPE
sqlalchemy.__loader__
sqlalchemy.default_metadata
sqlalchemy.func
