3.4.3 yup but I didn't bother trying to use any binary packages. I'd rather not
think about having to update our index with new versions of those whenever
they're released, especially because I don't actually use Windows.

BFG really, really, really, reaaaaaaaly doesn't need the security here that is
the reason for the i18messageid C extension. BFG just uses the package because
zope.configuration (zope.schema?) depends on it for ZCML. It's a dead chicken
in a non-Zope world.
