Hello Michael,

I don???t know what older pip versions without support for wheels do in this case.)

Works for a while but then at some point setuptools_scm cannot be installed
automatically. If I download and install it manually in the virtualenv subdir 
before starting pip, the install for Zope2 seems to finish.

Same problem later with "./bin/pip install Products.ZSQLMethods":

 No local packages or download links found for pytest-runner

virtualenv was installed with easy_install and easy_install says "Best match:
virtualenv 1.9.1", which is the current version. So what would be the best 
way to update virtualenv?

Yeah I get that.

My system. Because setuptools is not installed. If I install it while other
stuff was installed with Distribute, what is the probability that anything 
inside or outside my virtual environments will break? That's the question I'm 
asking myself.
