We need to do the zpkg/ZODB switch all at once because it affects how
extensions get their include files.  When I tried switching the Zope 2 trunk
before, there was a problem due to Five tests failing.  I don't remember the
details, but the Five-folks seemed to think things would be better with newer
versions of Five.

Since Five development is done elsewhere, though, it's hard to tell what the
deal is with that.  I snapshotted what I did get done as the
zpkg-build-branch, so we can get back to it without duplicating work.
