Hi, 

I have a fresh Plone 3.2.2 installation (with Unified Installer) on Ubuntu
8.04. In order to enable Markdown support I added Markdown to the egg
section of the buildout.cfg. But when running buildout I get the following
error:

Getting distribution for 'Markdown'.

markdown.MarkdownException: Failed to import ElementTree
An error occured when trying to install Markdown 2.0.Look above this message
for any errors thatwere output by easy_install.
While:
  Installing instance.
  Getting distribution for 'Markdown'.
Error: Couldn't install: Markdown 2.

Adding elementtree to the buildout.cfg doesn't help. Probably because it
already exists?
