Thanks Ryan!

For future reference, the following procedure worked:

1) grabbed the source zip
2) decompressed
3) accessed the directory with the (that I wished to install)
4) ran the following:

python bdist_egg

5) located the `.egg` file in the ./dist/ directory
6) copied the `.egg` into the plugins directory located
7) stopped the server that's handling trac/bloodhound
8) the plugin is now listed in admin> General/plugins where I checked off
the options I'd like to enable.
9) In my case (being the trac.ini Editor ), there appeared a
menu entry on the admin> General menu.

Could I have also just used the Bloodhound web UI to install the .egg
file?  What else would this have done other than copying the .egg file into
the plugins directory?
