There are a couple of things that need to be addressed:

- Make zpkg support top-level modules. I've started work on this but I
had to do some other stuff in the mean time (was busy with my actual
work). I'll try to look at it this week.

- Revise the stitching and also decide what of Zope 3 goes into
Zope 2.8 and what not. I guess people want zope.formlib, for example,
and it would make sense to include it in Zope 2.9 if it's also in Zope 3.2.

- Sort out any remaining issues with the in-place build system. IIRC,
only two things aren't working anymore: The ability to build
out-of-place (e.g. create a build tree in an empty dir) and the ability
to do "make install" from a checkout. The zpkg in-place build system
doesn't support those, somebody would have to make it support it if they
wanted these features.

Maybe there's more, I'm not claiming to be complete on this.
