Does anyone have any objections to renaming the project "buildout"?
Rename is fine with me.
But there's about 20 or so packages on PyPi using buildout as a namespace package.
Gaaaa. I wasn't aware of that.
That'll work just fine, as long as the new buildout puts the magic into its top level __init__.py and has no other code there.
No, it won't. You can't count on the order that namespace packages get scanned, so you really can't have code in __init__.py if you want to count on it getting installed.
This needs more thought. The new buildout could be a subpackage of the buildout namespace, although that seems awkward. Maybe it would be best to stick with zc.buildout 2.x.
