BTW, it would be nice to now remove the transaction package from

Yes. ZODB's setup.py is polyglotic... it works if setuptools isn't
installed. I suspect it shouldn't continue to given that it now has
an external egg dependency.
I've made changes to the ZODB setup.py and I've remove the
'transaction' directory from ZODB/src. The changes also imply that
setuptools is required to run setup.py, and the 'transaction'
distribution is named as an install_requires dependency. Setuptools
is now required to install the ZODB head. I made a tag before I did
this at http://svn.zope.org/ZODB/tags/before_transaction_remove/ in
case I hosed anything in the process.
