It would be a concern if, for instance, Plone started depending on
buildout recipes for installation, without "plain" distutils recipes. Of
course right now there are no distutils recipes for old-style Products.
So actually it's an active issue -- if buildout enables Plone to keep
from moving to distutils/setuptools/egg-style package deployment
(because buildout is flexible enough to support the old patterns) then
that would make it harder for workingenv. But I don't think anyone is
proposing that buildout means that Plone (and Zope 2/Five) shouldn't
continue its move towards traditional Python packaging.
No, quite the contrary in fact. The other day I wrote a proposal that
Zope's old-style Products will turn into regular python packages using
pkg_resource's namespace package support and eggs' entry points
It will allow us to deploy old-style products as eggs (using setup.py).
The proposal explicitly mentions workingenv and zc.buildout as two
mechanisms that allow such deployment w/ Zope.
