We've had zpkg-related bugs after *each* Zope 2.9 release; there are a
couple of open ones now for 2.10. Andreas, as release manager, doesn't
like zpkg or want to continue using it. I don't see this as a "new
feature": in fact, it restores some "old" features (e.g., out-of-tree
builds) lost in the switch to zpkg.
I agree that "Bugs Fixed" is not appropriate. We can reclassify it in
the changelog as "Other Changes", or soemthing.
I would argue that the patch is minimal enough to apply to 2.9.4 and
2.10 final without significant risk.
