-1, it is not really a problem. As Chris pointed out, this will be hard to
explain in documentation, but I think it will not be as big of a pain as
requiring 3rd parties to change their code (this is for both, Zope 2 and 3).
Furthermore, I really dislike the option of renaming "zope" in Zope 3 to
If you have a directory structure like
where both, 'lib/python' and 'lib/python/zope3' are in the path, then this is
pretty obvious. I think that only advanced Zope 2.8+ programmers will want to
use both Zope 2 and 3 functionality, so that educating them about this is
much easier than educating the scripter.
