It does.  It's just that the default setup is still to use a non-ZEOd
FileStorage for your main database.  But you can change options in the
config file to make it use a ZEO ClientStorage.  This is in lieu of of
requiring you to edit custom_zodb.py as you needed to do in 2.6 and

It's clear that the Zope source distro should support the use of
ClientStorage "out of the box".  It's not however so clear that the Zope
source distro should make it to set up a ZEO server (although it does
happen to include the necessary files to run a ZEO server too, it
doesn't include a 'zeoctl' or a zeo.conf, etc).
That's not to say that it shouldn't be easy to set up a ZEO server, but
that making it easy should probably the job of a package other than Zope
proper.  The right thing to do would be to package up a ZEO server
installer separate from Zope 2.7 with a similar kind of buildout,
support files, and configuration file.  At least that's been my idea so
