Indeed, it's not supposed to be in the instance buildout, I was just 
doing some testing ;-)

Yep, I'd imagine a downloadable "skeleton" for the instance which 
included the folders and the buildout.

I even have dreams of writing a package that will take an empty skeleton 
and turn it into a single .py file that when run with create an 
"instance home" with a buildout .cfg in it, the .conf files, and the 
right folders to "just work" once bin/buildout has been run.

I'll let you know if I ever make progress on that ;-)
