I had some problems, which were all due to the fact that I had various
"unofficial" setuptools installations all over the place claiming to
be newer setuptools versions, like
http://dist.jarn.com/public/setuptools-0.6c9-1.zip. I just removed all
traces of setuptools from my various site-packages and buildout egg
caches and bootstrapped everything again. After that it worked fine.

I also changed a couple of references of ez_setup with pointers to
bootstrapping in the code. bootstrapping was suggesting to me to
upgrade to a newer version by running ez_setup, which would obviously
be a bad idea ;)
