Now you go down a slippery road. If we distribute Python with Zope 3, then 
whenever a minor Python version is released, we have to release Zope 3 again. 
This is especially true for security fixes. Honestly, we do not have the 
man-power to do that. If Python is separate, I just go to my package update 
tool, update Python and I am all set.
