The problem is not what I do. I am usually paranoid enough about
breakage that I have everything I need to get stuff back up and running.
But sometimes I have people asking for support for a broken site/server,
that are not as nitpicky about what they do.
Eg they expect to be able to rebuild Zope and other external products
from a download, and so only have backed up the Products folder with
their inhouse products.
Especially getting the correct external products can be a real pain.
What I am worried about is that it will be as big a pain to get the
parts of a specific older buildout.
As far as I can see, buildout and eggs are being heralded as installers.
Not only as "make" replacements for advanced developers only. That is my
