[Product-Developers] Quills need eggification

Quills developers:

I see that you're asking people to link stuff into lib/python. I had a 
user do that in parts/instance/lib/python today. This is very bad. :)

Buildout is allowed to nuke parts/ whenever it sees fit. That's why we 
manage things explicitly in buildout.cfg, with user-edited files all 
living outside parts/.

I'd suggest that you release quills as a single egg that installs the 
quills.app stuff - or maybe as a number of eggs that depend on one 
another, if independent re-use is possible/sensible. One of those eggs 
can be Products.Quills, which would pull in the other ones.
