   $ easy_install grokproject

That works because http://cheeseshop.python.org/pypi/grokproject 
svn://svn.zope.org/repos/main/grokproject/trunk#egg=grokproject-dev as 
the download URL. That means easy_install will be able to install 
grokproject even though there's no actual release anywhere. It will 
simply get an svn checkout and run setup.py.

For the same reason, easy_installing grok works (or even mentioning 
'grok' as an egg in a buildout.cfg).
