   If you use the Unified Installer for Plone 3.1 and later, you get 
buildout with it !!  So now you can have the best of both worlds - 
Unified Installer AND buildout

   I wonder how many people don't realise this yet? In 3.0 if I recall 
correctly you had either unified installer or buildout, but from 3.1 
onwards you get both together. Very useful.

   BTW in my experience, buildout was somewhat of a PITA to understand 
at first, but it is totally worth the effort as it makes things so much
