Cool, thanks! I wasn't aware of the skip-fake-eggs option. I was looking 
for an option like that, but plone.recipe.zope2instance's PyPI page 
doesn't mention any support for fake eggs at all.

I saw you brought back buildout:eggs. Why? I see this a lot in Plone 
buildouts and I always wonder what it's for. AFAIK buildout:eggs isn't 
an official option supported by zc.buildout. Frankly, I find it 
confusing because it looks like it does something, but so far I couldn't 
figure out what it does.

I'm particularly puzzled that you included grokcore.security and 
grokcore.view in that option. Why? THey should just be picked up as 
dependencies of five.grok.
