Bug Description

"-=" does not substract.

The behaviour is documented in the description on "PyPI". There, "-=" is introduced with 3 buildouts "base", "extension"
and "extension2" which specify "option" as follows:

> base: option = b1 b2 b3 b4
> extension: option -= b1 b2
> extension2: option -= b1 b2 b3

The verification result is "b1 b2 b3 b4" -- i.e. "-=" had no effect.

I have noticed the same behavior. It would actually work for one item. But not multiple:

> base: option = b1 b2 b3 b4
> extension: option -= b2

would result in: b1 b3 b4
