If desired, you can have scripts import site.py *after* the buildout eggs have been set up (so if your buildout did not require PIL, but your system's Python had it, your code could use the system's version if you were willing to open yourself up to that potential fragility), but that's the only integration.

Gary, exist any way that this feature to exclude the site-packages can
be coded like an buildout extension ?
