I modified "runzeo" to prevent it to start Zope.
It looks like this:
# DM: prevent Zope from being start up
# (out of conflict resolution code)
import Zope; Zope.startup = None
except ImportError: pass
I also added the following patch:
# DM: 2004-06-03
# activate Zope's INSTANCE_HOME magic.
# This is necessary for conflict resolution of classes
# defined in "$INSTANCE_HOME/Products"
# Note that this is only a partial workaround. A complete solution
# would give ZEO the same Python path and product configuration options
# used by Zope. To get better control which classes are loaded
# an additional registration facility for such classes would
# be needed as well.
try: from App import FindHomes
except ImportError: pass # this is not Zope
