Buildout uses and tries hard to be compatible with setuptools. In  
particular, it relies on the setuptools.package_index.PackageIndex  
class, which only allows a single index to be provided.  If we want to  
allow multiple indexes to be used, then support should be added to  
setuptools and easy_install first.
