As of yesterday's zc.buildout release, buildout now uses the simple  
package index:


by default.  (You can cause it to use another index by setting the  
buildout index option.)

This change should provide significantly better performance and will  
make it easier to use historical releases, because the simple  
interfaces shows releases that have been hidden from the human  

It would be nice if easy_install also used the simple interface.
