I have always had trouble with this ZopeSkel paster_plugin when I add 
dependencies to my product using install_requires -- buildout ends up 
trying to install the dependencies within my development egg, rather 
than where they're supposed to go, and ends up getting confused.  So I 
always just delete the ZopeSkel paster_plugin. I'm not sure what it's 
there for.
