Thanks, Martijn. I'm sure other users of ZC buildout will appreciate
your work.

I had a brief look at the code: wouldn't it be better to use the
prebuilt packages for mx-base as well ?

Regarding Windows: if it makes things easier for you, we could
also build prebuilt archives for Windows. The installers are the
better approach for system administration purposes, but the
prebuilt archives would work just as well.

A lot of the code in the Recipe looks like boiler-plate code.
Doesn't buildout provide a base class for this ?
