Yes, that fixes it.

Now I see a different problem:

   File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 2475, 
in scan_list
     raise ValueError("Expected "+item_name+" in",line,"at",line[p:])
ValueError: ('Expected version spec in', 'zc.buildout[] ==>=2.0.0b1', 
'at', ' ==>=2.0.0b1')

I boils down to buildout injecting minimum requirements for buildout and 
zc.recipe.egg in the version part like ">=2.0.0b1"

Apparently this is new? buildout-versions expects only "real" versions 
in there, so it adds an "==", which results in a weird-looking fat 
arrow: "==>=2.0.0b1".

I think I can compensate for that.

But... is it true that you can put ">=" requirements in the versions list?
