As far as I can see, direct military rule will not work. That was what Mubarak had, and it broke when officers on the ground did not agree to crush the people at Tahrir.

Can't really see a civil war looming either, that takes at least two sides with guns.

My best guess would be a series of short lived governments until either an Egyptian government finds a patron with big enough pockets, international economy turns around or a coalition is formed between different elements that can pull of at least a partial redistribtuion (which includes a scale from Putin to Lenin).
