I was under the impression that virtualenv was no longer required?

An immediate problem I could think of, is integration of the dev 
environment with tools like Eclipse (esp. for code 
completion/debugging).  As it stands, the eggs go in the ~/.buildout 
directory.  This would be different for virtualenv?  How would one tell 
Eclipse to share the same virtual environment?  I have never used 
virtualenv, so it's a bit intimidating :-)

Speaking of this, integration with Eclipse/pydev/Aptana  is still not 
easy, even with the existence of recipes to help out on that front.  
There are just so many packages to add to the pythonpath.  If I could 
add an item to the wishlist...

Kind regards

We will have solar energy as soon as the utility companies solve one
technical problem -- how to run a sunbeam through a meter.
