Hi All,

Is there any way to force a part to re-install?

I have a part using the djangorecipe part that stubbornly refuses to 
notice that I've changed an eggs dependencies or changed the stuff in 
the develop line of the [buildout] section.

I've tried "bin/buildout install djangopart" but this doesn't have any 
effect. The only way I've found to get the part to re-install is to 
change the options in the part, install, and then put the options back 
like I want them before re-installing :-(
