[Distutils] buildout 2.0 - alternative installation providers

Hi Jim,

Have you had any dealings with Enthought's Python Distribution:


It looks like a useful tool, providing pre-compiled and compatible 
versions of a lot of the numeric and scientific libraries that can be a 
total PITA to get installed and working with each other...

They also have their own installer tool, enpkg, which, from what I can 
tell behaves a lot like easy_install.

I wonder what your thoughts are about getting buildout and EPD to play 
nicely with each other?
