Good policy. And I wouldn't call buildout "well-supported". It's
barely maintained, doesn't support modern packaging standards like
wheels, and the documentation is nothing to write home about.

It has some nice features (like the optional shared egg cache that can
speed up builds), but those come at a hefty price.

Alan Turing thought about criteria to settle the question of whether
machines can think, a question of which we now know that it is about
as relevant as the question of whether submarines can swim.
