In reference to this rather long discussion.  I would love to get an  
interview or case study on buildout in the scope of package management  
for Python for the book I am co-authoring on Python For *nix Systems  
Administration.  If there is an official ambassador, I would love to  
talk to that person, to make sure I do it justice.  That particular  
chapter will cover eggs, virtualenv, and buildout, so I pretty excited  
about it, although is the toughest chapter in the book so far.
