Is there a way to do find-links in buildout? I think so, maybe named
something like find-links. Then you'd point at a page that has the link
with #egg=.... IIRC you have to point find-links at a real HTML page.
I sometimes put on in svn (maybe actually in the buildout), and point it
there. Annoying part is you have to commit it to test. buildout, kind
of like install_requires, I think needs you to give it something it can
actually fulfill. So you'd need Foo==dev,>1.1 or somesuch.
