Here are my non-scientific results:

buildout times:

regular: 4:52.86
simple: 3:15.57
ppix: 2:03.58

As everyone is aware, network latency has a large impact on this so here 
are the shortest round-trip packet times I got (with a small sample).

cheeseshop.python.org: 93ms
download.zope.org: 8ms

I suspect the majority/entirety of the difference between ppix and 
simple is network related.
