Workingenv update comment 000

Is there a way to repair an existing workingenv? I know you have been tweaking issues for compatibility w/ setuptools here and there (invalid site.py error, etc). Obviously I haven't looked at the new --confirm option. Maybe that does it.

The new version saves your configuration information in .workingenv/*, so you can simply re-run python workingenv.py existing-env. It'll ask you before overwriting any files.

One thing I'm trying to find time for in my company is convert our hand-rolled continuous integration package to buildbot. I think workingenv would be a nice way to automate the buildbot environment for each test suite. Has anyone tried something like this yet?

I haven't, but it definitely seems like a good way to do this.
