And "configure; make; make install" is a worth goal.  From a
sysadmin's point of view, they're already conditioned to doing this to
install open source software, so under the Pinball Machine Principle,
when they see one in Zope, they'll run that first before reading (the
whole) README file.  Low barrier of entry is a good thing!
