Yes, building and testing tarballs.

What does this mean?  What tar balls? Do you mean releases?

Another interesting idea is testing old bodies of code against newer
Zope 3 versions. For backwards compatibility. For example, schoolbell,
released with Zope 3.1 fails its tests with Zope3.2.

I think this is a great idea.  We do this internally.  Of course,
it doesn't make sense to send schoolbell test failures to the Zope 3 list.
It does often make sense to raise breakage issues in the collector,
or on the list.
