No, I don't mean for buildout to rewrite its own script. I mean that the
unchanged buildout script should call

   path_to_new_python bin/buildout $options

Running the buildout script should always invoke the Python used for
bootstrapping. Otherwise I fear it's possible to screw up the whole
buildout by misconfiguring the Python part.
