Zope 2 has newbie users? I hope for them it has not :)

To be honest the reason that recipe isn't mentioned there, is because
Chris Withers worked on that section and didn't feel like it belongs
there. And nobody else cared a great deal.

Note that plone.recipe.zope2instance is actually in the collective,
has a bug tracker on Launchpad and is licensed under the ZPL 2.1. The
namespace plone just signals "written by the Plone community".

I actually don't care about that specific piece of documentation.
There's hardly ever new users to Zope 2 that'd need it.

zopectl init would be highly confusing. The "zopectl" script is
usually associated with a particular Zope instance. That instance
should have been created beforehand.

But what would your tool do, that mkzopeinstance isn't doing?
