I posted an updated pull request with support for conditional Buildout
sections in Buildout 2.x

This new version addresses some issues when handling arbitrary Python
expressions and comments with brackets [ ] as these were sometimes
ambiguous as the section names are also enclosed in comments and
section expressions can also contain list comprehensions and other
brackets enclosed lists.
All the tests are passing and I am getting good mileage from these on
rather large buildouts.

You can give it a local test spin by fetching this branch:
building a dist with setup.py
and asking for a buildout with version 2.1.0dev1 in your boostrap with
boostrap.py --version 2.1.0dev1 --find-links=<some path to your built buildout>
