Zope 2.13 only uses the ZTK "core" part and overrides the ZODB3
requirement to use a 3.10 release. All tests on Python 2.7 pass for
all the zope.* packages. It's only the zopeapp set and the ZODB which
aren't compatible.

So from a Zope2 perspective we can support Python 2.7 in addition to
2.6 rather easily. Since everything works, it doesn't make a lot of
sense to hold off official 2.7 support. The ZTK has more code and
other Python versions to support, so it's in a different position.
