please downgrade my buildout!

i won't go into discussing particular use cases here — that would perhaps be too weird :) — but let's just say sometimes it can be handy to be able to quickly "downgrade" an existing plone 3.x buildout to plone 2.5. here's a buildout config that does exactly this:
extends = buildout.cfg

recipe = plone.recipe.distros
urls =
nested-packages = Plone-2.5.5.tar.gz
version-suffix-packages = Plone-2.5.5.tar.gz
eggs =

url =
fake-zope-eggs = true

products =

  1. I have found that when building Plone 2.5 instances with buildout, I have to manually remove parts/instance/etc/site.zcml before the instance will start successfully.
