Agreed. I don't understand Tres's or Benji's point either; thanks to 
buildout we've left such slugs long behind us I thought. Typically 
people would symlink these into an old old installation of Zope 3 (or 
copy them over).

Explicit granular configuration isn't broken at all; if you want to 
explicitly include zope.file, you include its configure.zcml, not its 

Unless Tres comes back with some convincing explanation soon, please do
