> (1) This may be unrelated to your problem, but I have *not* added support for using a virtualenv without --no-site-packages, and AFAIK it was never supported. It looks like you are not using --no-site-packages in your virtualenv, so I don't support that.

Awesome, thank you for giving it a whirl.

In addition to using the code from the svn+ssh://svn.zope.org/repos/main/zc.buildout/branches/gary-betafix/ branch (I guess you made your own release?), you also need to make sure you are using the bootstrap if you want to use the new feature without virtualenv.

That's probably fine. I have a shared download-cache, so when I test, I make an sdist, put it in my download-cache, and give it a whirl.
