What is the difference between zope.release and zope.kgs? Is the  
latter a fossil? Does it need to go away?

Why does zope.release have a 2-step build process?  Perhaps naively,  
it seems that one could define a simple project that defined a test  
script over a "known good set" of projects.  Is the 2-step process a  
consequence of maintaining the index or tar ball? (I'm not  
criticizing, I'm just trying to understand.)
