Hi,

Would there be any sense to make buildouts to have default allow-hosts
configuration? E.g one described here
http://opensourcehacker.com/2012/07/11/working-around-buildout-server-down-problems/

Pros

* --allow-hosts speeds up BO quite a bit, because with it setutools does not
try to crawl every cat picture link it finds in README.txt, CHANGES.txt and
AUTHORS.txt

* In fact, many of these links are permanently broken and may cause
setuptools to wait $TIMEOUT until it figures out that maybe you can't get
trick or treat on this door

Cons

* Your log and terminal looks like a warez site after MPAA visit with all
those "Link to http://www.ijg.org/files/jpegsrc.v6b.tar.gz ***BLOCKED*** by
--allow-hosts" notices

Soo... could we get the best of the both worlds

- Sane allow-host configuration

- WITHOUT log pollution

???
