- -1.  The externals are just that, external to the Zope project.
Modifying them should require extra thought, and a little extra effort,
because the possibility exists that the change might break something
outside the Zope tree.

When we get to an egg-based Zope install, I think such a gesture would
map onto "check out the source egg and force it into the path.'
