Note that I have a script in zope.release that can update a big tree. The Zope 
3.4 release will feature an update of that tree. Now that I have this script, 
I can use it for future releases, but we'll probably fade it out soon. (I 
just feel really bad not providing a migration path; note that people working 
with Zope 3.3 have probably never seen an egg-based release.)
