KGS is two things: * KGS the software * KGS the concept KGS the concept will have a life outside of the Zope world. KGS the concept is very easy to implement; you just make available on some URL a buildout versions.cfg, or you run your own package index. I'll note that buildout seems to be clawing to a life outside of the Zope world; I know of several Django users that adopted it. It'd be much more popular if we had a good bunch of beginner level tutorials for it. Anyway, we've already decided to use setup.py dependencies for API compatibility. That's the best you're going to get out of us for a while.
