No you're not right here. With buildout, when you are using the
develop clause, it create a link in the develop-eggs dir and if look
inside the new file it would point to your package directory directly.
After that you can install the egg in the "eggs' section and use it
directly as it would be installed from pypi.
is it working correctly ?
