[Distutils] Heads up: major change in zc.buildout policy for selecting distributions

I'm about to make a new release of zc.buildout that uses a different
policy for selecting distributions. In particular, by default,
zc.buildout will now prefer final distributions over non-final ones.
If there are final and non-final distributions that satisfy a
requirement, buildout will, by default, select a final distribution
even if there are non-final distributions that satisfy a requirement.
This release will cause many existing buildouts to use older
distributions than they do now.
You can change this behavior by providing a prefer-final buildout
prefer-final = false
