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.
