"Zope Corp." didn't write the code for either zope.catalog or
zope.app.catalog (from which it was drawn):  all that code is written by
individuals, many of whom were not employees of ZC at the time.  If there
*is* a single (primary) author, then listing that *person* as author is
fine, but otherwise the Foundation works better than ZC as a "collective
author".
