That's not the opinion of the people who wrote the buildout recipes 
we're using. :)

The idea is that buildout can generate the whole setup for you, and that 
includes the database. The benefit is this that buildout can also 
potentially setup things like ZEO and so on.

You seem to have a philosophical difference with the people that wrote 
zc.recipe.filestorage and zc.zope3recipes... We've been following that 
pattern with Grok from the start and I'm not sure what you think is 
wrong with it.
