[Distutils] zc.buildout, recipe downloading dev eggs

On closer inspection, the zc.recipe.egg documentation doesn't make any
mention of this feature, though I think it's a great idea and hats off
to the author if it was originally intended to work that way but
doesn't, or maybe broke at some point because a contributor didn't
understand the feature.

If there's some work to be done, I'm happy to help.

I really want this style of buildout usage to be possible.

Let's work together!  Our Foundation's goals line up with Zope extremeley well!
