Sure, but if you ever want to be able to tell users to do:

We generally encourage not to use the system Python in everything we
ship (Windows, Mac and Unified installers all ship their own Python) —

moved on to Python 2.5 and 2.6.
Agreed. Of course we'll still be stuck on Python 2.x for what amounts to
indefinitely when Python 3.x comes out, but that is another problem for
I agree that something like this is a necessary evil. I don't think
easy_install plone should ever be the way to install it, unless this
installs a 'ploneproject' that creates buildouts for you and then
installs everything non-globally. Nonetheless, this should be possible
with the system Python, just so people can try things out easily.
Anyway, perhaps some of the Plone people could volunteer in fixing up
