bug#4298: .egg files could open in archive-mode by default

Python modules are often distributed as files with the extension ".egg". These are just ZIP files with a convention about the layout of the contents, as described in [1].

It would be nice if Emacs could open these files in archive-mode by default, either by adding an entry for the file extension ".egg" to auto-mode-alist, or by adding a suitable pattern for ZIP files to magic-fallback-mode-alist.

(Perhaps this suggestion will become moot when libmagic is integrated into Emacs.)
