Oh, this will make development so much more tedious. Let's say 
zope.testbrowser is an egg and I discover a bug in zope.textbrowser while 
doing some other Zope 3 development, I have to check out zope.testbrowser, 
fix the bug, check it in, download the new egg and hope it fixed my Zope 3 
problem. Honestly this is far too much and I will at most make a bug report.

I have seen you take a similar approach to zope.testing and I found that 
painful just by watching the checkins. I feel like an old record, but please 
let's keep the development process as simple as possible. I rather make some 
concessions to the packaging and dependency system than spending more time
