Well, try and easy_install i18ndude, and see all your Zope2 instances
explode. :-)
Even if the system python is nice, as on Ubuntu, you may end up in the
situation where you need different versions of modules for the Zope
pythons and the system pythons. And although it's fixable after the
fact, remeber, you wont see the problem until you restart the zope,
and then you forgot what you did, and don't understand suddenly why
nothing works. And in worse case, you might after a server restart
notice that all of your Zope instances suddenly do not work. And it
takes a couple of hours to figure out why and fix it. Downtime you
don't want.

Yeah, I haven't found a good solution for that yet. I those libraries
should be available as eggs, that solves it. But not all are...
