I thought it was more about this - which pip can help with.   "bin/pip 
--freeze" produces a list of all eggs in pip's path.  One could do a 
"pip --freeze > versions.cfg"

There is a buildout recipe that uses pip -

Again - I'm not sure how far off the point I am with this thread,  but 
when I see buildout mentioned I think of the serious troubles I have had 
with certain popular recipes and wish that the help with pinning that 
pip brings to the table would be taken advantage of.
