I see. But 2.0dev on pypi isn't?
What's the story behind zc.relation and the evolution of zc.relationship?

I think we'd need Alec to find the time to do this if it's to happen,
but it does sound like the better option.

Well, having a version that only works with ZODB 3.8 isn't *terrible*,
it's just annoying. If and when Plone actually ships with five.intid and
plone.relations, it'll be on ZODB 3.8 anyway. It's just a bit more work
for people wanting to use it.

Hopefully. Do we know that zc.relationship 1.1 works with both ZODB
What's the difference between 1.1.1 and 2.0dev on pypi?
