Sounds great, but does it have to be easy_install?
Since this is already force multiplying simplicity and loosely coupled-
ness, maybe have a simple infection server that you can bootstrap
various distributed python tools with. If that thing used easy_install
I really wouldn't care, it'd be abstracted away... Hmmm...
I like simple. I like that twill is almost stable, sorry, dead, enough
to be in the standard library. Keep raising the low-tide mark. (did
the twill sprint mutate into figleaf? Hard to tell being back home
instead of at pycon itself).
I also like the idea that results reporting can be separated out, so I
could "ease" into using this by keeping my buildbot infrastructure for
a while, and start with adding in the pieces "on top". Then a basement
replacement is an obvious tipping point change with little risk.
