Well, if multi-versioned installs were deprecated, it would not be necessary to use Setuptools' style of script generation. Instead you could simply dereference the entry point, calling the underlying function directly in the script. This detail is probably more of a distutils-sig question, and I don't have a strong opinion.
But I was thinking specifically of the egg activation buildout puts at the top of scripts.
Not sure what you mean by this last bit...
I believe that to fully insulate buildout you need still virtualenv --no-site-packages.
buildout has a --no-site-packages option (hopefully also specifiable in the [buildout] section) and some other cool things that I believe Gary Post worked on lurking on a branch waiting for Jim to review...
