Are there any facilities to share eggs among packages (I have a feeling Jim implied there isn't yet)?
If not, what would such a facility look like?
I'm looking at this from a CPAN perspective and wondering whether it's even possible that these types of issues are not yet handled by all the work that's gone into eggs et al.
You're misunderstanding. This has nothing to do with regular python packages using eggs (which they share just fine), it is about a specific tool (zc.buildout) which manages a very tightly controlled environment (for repeatable deployments). It may also be that zc.buildout does support this (which is basically useful mostly for development where you have lots of projects going on at once all using various packages), I'm only asking.
