Thanks for all this progress, Maurits!

Cool! We also want to tell buildout to use the win32 tarball. I think 
that's the limit of our cross-platform ambition, so we just want support 
to create:

* windows binary eggs tarball

* source tarball

The download recipe also needs to be able to know it's downloading on 
windows and then somehow download the windows versions. The buildout.cfg 
shouldn't have a different URL as a result though, as then it'd not be 
portable. So that's a bit tricky, as now the whole URL to the eggs is 
included. Ideas?
