Esthetic (probably spelled badly) reasons maybe:

   ZODB/ZEO is an independent package (not depending on Zope).

   The patches let it at least reference Zope.

A cleaner solution would be to start ZEO in a Zope environment
with a different Zope specific script which could activate
the shown patches and then call "runzeo".
