Maybe there's a difference between being a Zope user and using zope
packages? I think it's great that I can pick and choose
zope.interfaces and other packages in my not-Zope project. But if I'm
deploying actual Zope-the-web-thing I just want to install it from my
distro and be done with it. It's up to my distro to determine
compatibility, handle bug and security fixing, etc.
