I benefit from zc.buildout in two ways for my zope projects since i  
figured it out:

   - every-time-and-every-place reproducable development environments
   - only install what is really necessary

But sometimes:
   - I am bothered by that .installed.cfg (I always stumble over it,  
because it's hidden).
   - Someone already mentioned the .pyc-file misery.
   - And it's not easy to find the right order for including  
the .zcml-files in larger projects. Maybe there is a recommended  
order somewhere which I didn't recognize until now. I thought about  
extracting it from the DEPENDENCIES.cfg and import-statements.

Altogether it is really worth to dive into zc.buildout (but you  
should take a deep breath ;-)
