I just pinned zc.buildout and the used recipes in the generated

I was worried about pinning zc.buildout there as in the past I have
seen this resulting in a conflict error when bin/buildout was using a
different version than the one pinned in versions.cfg.  But I tried
reproducing that now with a generated project and failed.  So that is

Only setuptools is not pinned now in a fresh project:

$ bin/buildout -Novvvvv |sed -ne 's/^Picked: //p' | sort | uniq
setuptools = 0.6c8

When I add that to versions.cfg but with a *previous* version number,
that will result in a conflict error:

$ bin/buildout 
Develop: '/home/maurits/svn/grokproject/foo/.'
  Getting section i18n.
  Initializing section i18n.
  Installing recipe lovely.recipe.

An internal error occured due to a bug in either zc.buildout or in a
recipe being used:

(setuptools 0.6c8 (/home/maurits/buildout-eggs/setuptools-0.6c8-py2.4.egg), Requirement.parse('setuptools==0.6c7'))

When you do "bin/buildout -n" this conflict goes away though as
bin/buildout is updated to that version 7.

So this can be solved by the user himself, but a casual user will just
run bin/buildout, see the conflict error and possibly give up, which
is what we want to avoid.  So pinning of setuptools should not be
done.  But that may have been the conclusion already earlier.

All systems go!
