The databases will be separate of course. But I'd expect namespace
conflicts with two ZODB's being installed when starting Zope (one in
Python's site-packages, one in Zope's lib/python).

"This version of ZODB can be used with Zope 2.7.3 or later, but you must
replace the version of ZODB that comes packaged with Zope.  It should be
possible, for example, to install this code into a Zope 2.7 software

But I'm not quite sure how that would work. Also, "should be possible"
leaves room for doubt :-)
