Whilst I understand that we don't have the capacity to test all 
different configurations now, I think it's a good principle to try to 
avoid a 'hard' dependency on zc.buildout. If we can, we should rely on 
e.g. setuptools console scripts rather than things generated through 
specific recipes.

Of course, this is just part of an evolution. 'mkzopeinstance' was a 
completely custom build solution. Using a standard zc.buildout 
configuration is better, imho, than maintaining a custom build script. 
But using just setuptools/eggs and letting buildout be a preference 
rather than a hard dependency is better still.
