zc.buildout has a special "dev.py" bootstrap for bootstrapping itself with a
development checkout of itself.  So you actually need to get the buildout
development checkout in bin/buildout's sys.path.  dev.py is a good example.

Bit of a pain for regular use, for sure :-)

Jim: OK for me to merge the branch back to trunk?
