for monitoring if a storage has been packed it would be handy if it 
remembered the date of its last pack. An easy solution for file storage 
would be to create a Data.fs.packed file.

Other ways do determine the date would be:

- Use age of Data.fs.old: very implicit; file is not available during 
packing (thus monitoring becomes difficult); it is not required to keep 
- Provide a wrapper script around zeopack which stores the information: 
while that would work it is rather tedious to provide that again and 
again for each buildout/installation.
