Yes, it's very nice. I just tried it in my grok checkout (diff 
attached). I especially like the ability to simply say "bin/instance fg" 
to start the Zope 3 instance.

I have two bug reports to make:

1.) The advertised "user = user:passwd" doesn't work. Instead, it wants 
"admin-user = user" and "admin-password = passwd". This isn't so much of 
a bug as a documentation issue. Btw, it doesn't look like it supports 
password managers for encrypted passwords. I wonder if 
zc.recipe.zope3instance does...

2.) When the recipe fails, e.g. due to a missing configuration option in 
buildout, it exits gracefully with a nice error message (I assume the 
error message comes from zc.buildout). When you fix the problem in your 
buildout.cfg and want to run the buildout again, gocept.zope3recipe 
complains that it can't create the instance directory again. The problem 
is this line:

         # XXX In theory we could just delete the parts directory here, 
if it
         # exists already. Or not?

When those problems are fixed, I'll be happy to commit my change.
