I'ld disgraee. To me 'develop=' is just a way to tell buildout that it
can also use a local development egg in addition to everything it can
find on remote indexes. It just extends the list of places where packages
can be found but does not change any rules for selecting the version to

It's perfectly possibly to have a local development egg with an exact
revision number which you select in a version part in buildout.cfg.
