There is supposed to be a dance in Python itself for declaring a
namespace package.  Framkly, anybody who wants to play along *without*
setuptools installed has rocks in their heads:  distutils is too wanky
to use by itself for "complicated" cases, and setuptools makes it just
barely tolerable.

Note that I am actively working in that directory on eggifying a number
of the "top-level" zope packages in "released" verisons (typically in
the flavors which shipped with ZopeX3.0.0 and Zope3.2).
