[egenix-users] Make mxODBC Zope DA pip installable ?

We're currently preparing the 2.2.3 release of the mxODBC Zope DA and
were wondering whether it would be useful to have pip install work
with the product.

Since Zope and Plone both use zc.buildout which builds on egg files,
this would likely not bring about any advantages, but perhaps some
of you are using pip and a requirements.txt file instead for
Zope/Plone installations.

To support pip (which doesn't support egg files), we'd have to
additionally build prebuilt distribution files which pip can
install and upload a web installer to PyPI.

Would be great if you could give us some feedback on this.
