[Grok-dev] pinning version of zc.buildout useless?

When you create a grok project with grokproject 0.8, you have the
versions.cfg file in the created directory.
In this file you have zc.buildout version pinned to 1.0.6.
For me this version will never be satisfied because when you execute
`python2.4 bootstrap.py`, it installs always the latest version on
PYPI (now it's 1.1.1). Am I wrong?
It says "Getting distribution for 'zc.buildout==1.0.6'", but actually
it copy the one installed system-wide (or in a virtualenv I think) or
download the latest from pypi.
The generated bin/buildout use zc.buildout 1.1.1.

The only way to actually use a specific version of zc.buildout is to
install it system-wide (or in a virtualenv) with
easy_install-2.4 zc.buildout==1.0.6
and then use
buildout bootstrap
