"pretty much any" is not allways enough ;-)

Be aware of:

Buildout is experimental and only supported for linux and mac users.

And you could get a lot of work if you use 3-rd party dependencies
and there are no eggs available.

But if you like to have a "let's see what we can fix today" approach
then eggs are fine today.

I like the buildout concept since I worked with them last week, but 
it's not "ready for production" in general. At least not for me and
some of my customers windows boxes ;-)
