I just attempted to upgrade Django to 1.2.5 by simply overwriting the existing Django directory in ~/webapps/myapp/lib/python2.6/django. However, there is still a file called Django-1.2.3-py2.6.egg-info in that directory.

Is it safe to remove this file?

Yes, it's safe to delete that file in this case, because we don't actually install the Django libraries as an egg.

Note that if you install other libraries as eggs (eg, via easy_install or pip), then you should not delete the egg-info files.
