Compiles Python 2.4, 2.5, 2.6 from source with the help of zc.buildout.  Based

Make a new virtual environment for Python 2.6 (for example) like so::

  $ path/to/buildout/bin/virtualenv-2.6 path/to/new/env

You can switch from `setuptools` to `distribute` like so::

  $ path/to/buildout/bin/virtualenv-2.6 --distribute path/to/new/env
