Accessing environment variables seems reasonable on some level, however: - I'd worry about the choice of the virtual section name.

Though so - same mixed feelings over here. :)
Florian, can you describe why you want to use environment variables in extends?
The general reason I can see is "it works everywhere else", except that there's some bootstrapping problem involved at some point anyway.
Can you use any variable expansion in the values given in the [buildout] section anyway?
