We have been doing it in CPS for a while, in a "CPSCompat"
very easy, this is python, we can monkey-patch everything we need.
The problem with that approach is that it introduces the risk that
bugfixes never make it back to the underlying product, because nobody
has the incentive (beyond good intentions) to land them. <span

My policy is to include in CPSCompat only code that has alreay been
checked in to the CMF 1.5 branch or (or Zope 2.8 branch), and excatly
that code (no additional patches). This avoids the problem you
mention, because I know the code I need will be in the next minor
release, so everything gets to be maintained properly.
