The major competitor for mindshare is probably Ian Bicking's
'virtualenv': it makes using 'easy_install' *really* easy, because you
are working in a sandbox.
The standard installs for repoze.zope2, repoze.grok, repoze.plone, etc.
all assume a virtualenv, and add scripts which turn the vanilla
virtualenv into an "instance."
