This doesn't strike me as simpler to *use* (as I said earlier, I'd much
prefer a *single* gesture of "use this KGS" to set up both the versions
and the list of packages to run tests for, and I think it's worth
spending effort to get there), but I'm not sure that's what you meant.
What makes you prefer two files instead of one?

I'm quite willing to either merge the z3c.recipe.kgs into compattest or
abandon the latter (or whatever) and to write a buildout extension to
pin the versions using a controlled-packages file, but I only want to do
that kind of work if we're reasonably certain that this is what we want.
