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 \
                      --index-url=http://dist.repoze.org/simple \

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
setuptools-enabled program.
