While I'm convinced of the little gain (and even more so of the extended  
pain), I think that the move to eggs will over time make the Zope Products  
idea redundant. I guess this is why Plone has dropped it. Anyway, I'm glad  
we had the discussion as it helped me understand better how things fit  
together. :-)

Regarding something completely different - I picked up on zope-dev that  
the svn server has been updated. Does this mean that we can now use the  
svn branch to trunk merging offered in svn >= 1.5 or is this still  
inadvisable? If it is still inadvisable could you list (again) how to go  
about doing it properly and safely?
