In that case, a phrase like "If this package has been released as an
egg, ..." would work wonders ..

Ah! That word "too"! I didn't realize that you have to add lines to
*both* the egg and develop-eggs sections, and I can't find it in
http://pypi.python.org/pypi/zc.buildout or

Should buildout complain if it finds something in 'develop-eggs' with
nothing corresponding in 'eggs'? It does something (add a link file)
but it doesn't look as if this is useful.
