I just made a new release of zc.buildout, 1.1.0, that:

- Provides a global buildout option, unzip, that sets the default  
policy for unzipping eggs.

   If you include:

      unzip = true

   in your buildout section, then all eggs will be unzipped by  
default.  Note that you'll
   need zc.recipe.egg 1.1.0 or later for this to work for eggs  
installed by the egg recipes.

- Now recompile Python files when eggs are installed unzipped.  This  
is helpful for debugging, as the file names stored in code objects  
will be correct.  Both pyc and pyo files are produced. (Most eggs only  
have pyc files.)
