This isn't exciting by any means unless you're one of the people who 
package Zope up for distribution, or maybe you're one of the people who 
manage lots of little Zopes on one system; but I'd like to revive the 
"grand unified Zope installation and control" proposal that has been 
floated by many people (including me) in one form or another for some 
time.  Wikiwise, this would wrap up and, 
at least.

To summarize, this would involve

- an expanded build program with an installation scheme that would allow 
multiple versions of Zope to be present on the same system

- making that installation 'secure by default'

- a registry of Zope installations and one of instances and their 
configuration settings

- a 'zopectl' program or similar that would be able to start and stop 

- a 'zopeinstance' program or similar that would become the 
_recommended_ way of setting up Zope, by creating an INSTANCE_HOME

It would be nice if

- the same framework could apply to Zope 3, maybe taking care of that 
piece ahead of time

I'm more than willing to head this up, though I question how long we 
have before 2.6 to do so.
