It's a limitation of buildout, perhaps. It is possible to use
setuptools with multiple indexes: 'compoze' allows spelling multiple
'-index-url' items on the command line. E.g.::
$ bin/compoze fetch --index-url=http://download.zope.org/zope3.4 \
With 'easy_install', you can only specify one '--index-url' per command,
but you can change it each time you run 'easy_install.

Not so. You can use multiple PackageIndex objects within a
