It really would not destroy the world to keep all, or most versions of
python-ldap available on pypi.  It's only ~120KB/version.

With buildouts, the scripted build process could take recipes from
several source control repositories and even an admin/developer may not
have commit access to all of them to update the version of a python package
referenced in a recipe.

I personally think buildouts are now a snarled mess of spaghetti.
Unfortunately they are now the only way to deploy some apps and those apps
depend on python-ldap and other packages, and frequently versions that
their developers would prefer to have as unavailable.
