I'm not too involved yet, but I have this association with what you wrote:

I guess that this could be adapted/used in other cases as well, as

$ paster create --list-templates
Available templates:
   basic_namespace:    A project with a namespace package
   basic_package:      A basic setuptools-enabled package
   basic_zope:         A Zope project
   nested_namespace:   A project with two nested namespaces.
   paste_deploy:       A web application deployed through paste.deploy
   ...some more plone stuff here...

doesn't list only Zope&Plone stuff. But then I also don't know Java's 
webstart, so...
