Indeed. zopeproject is actually smart enough to detect that you've got a 
setting in ~/.buildout/default and won't generate an eggs-directory 
option in case you choose the default eggs location by simply hitting enter.

I should get around backporting this to grokproject, or simply basing 
grokproject on top of zopeproject (in which case I'll have to 
forward-port some things). Help appreciated :)
