I don't want to, and won't until it gets too painful to support
both. I just suspect that time is drawing near.

I can also foresee a time at which buildout stops using either.  That
might be the best path for buildout....wow, the more I think of that,
the more appealing it seems.  Replacing use of setuptools/distribute
could be a really nice project for a certain upcoming German buildout
sprint. :)
