"zc.buildout" is actually Python 3.2 compatible now, FWIW.  Its 2.X
release line is 3.X compatible but the author doesn't want that to be
the default version pulled down yet, so he has "egg-only" releases of it
on PyPI which prevents easy_install/pip from treating it as "most
recent" for users of Python 3.  However, if you use Python 3, and ask
for it, you indeed get a Python 3 compat version,
