I have actually tried that and actually made it work, but it is kind of
tricky, because TileMill generates Mapnik2 configuration files which
Mapproxy doesn't support at the moment.

Mapnik2 development is in heavy flux and the new Tilemill 0.5 version broke
my old setup. I will try to make it work again and post my setup.

Another thing that does work is to generate a Mbtiles files[0] with Mapproxy
and serve them with Tilestream[1].
