It isn't available as a tarball egg but it certainly is available as a 
develop egg. Eggs don't have to come as .egg or .tar.gz files. In fact, 
'egg' is a bit of an abstract thing. It's really just a directory (or 
zip file) that's on sys.path and has an EGG-INFO.

You do a checkout like that in your buildout directory and then tell 
zc.buildout to call stormcontainer/setup.py develop by adding the 
'stormcontainer' directory to the develop line like so:

   develop = . stormcontainer
