Actually this distro *also* includes the ZODB packages. I wasn't able to excise them.

- http://dist.repoze.org/ZODB3-3.7.2.tar.gz contains the ZODB packages,
  including transaction and ThreadedAsync.  This is the version that
  the zopelib distribution depends on.

zopelib doesn't depend on this package, but repoze.zope2 does (just to get the most recent ZODB release; the installation ordering ensures that this one is installed last, and so is hopefully found first).

The voice of idealism says that yes, every little Zope package ought to
be packaged in each popular distro, and these should work together
nicely, and be bug-free and fully supported. It will take a lot of time and work to reach that state, and I'm afraid most of the Zopers are too
busy building production applications to be much help with this.

Yup, exactly.

+1 on fewer packages, particularly for Zope2, which is a lovable twisted mess of subtle interdependencies between packages that mostly have no lives on their own anyway.
