I'm not sure what Chris meant, but the change to the visual output of
the testrunner when running "with dots" seems gratuitous to me, as well
- -- I don't see any benefit to the "indented, narrower" output,
especially because it's "prettiness" gets fouled up anyway by
deprecation warnings, etc.  I objected to the change enough to file
collector issues:

Zope 2.9 broke the 'confiugre-make' dance in several ways, due (I think)
to the choice to bolt on^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hretrofit zpkg.  E.g.:

 $ cd /tmp
 $ svn co svn+ssh://svn.zope.org/repos/main/Zope/trunk zt
 $ cd zt
 $ ./configure --prefix=/tmp/zt-sw && make && make install
 running install_scripts
 error: cannot copy tree 'build/scripts-2.4': not a directory
 make: *** [install] Error 1
 $ make clobber inplace
 $ ls -laF bin
 ls: bin: No such file or directory

(The 'bin' directory was, in Zope 2.7, 2.8, the location for the
scripts, created during an inplace build).
