I am merging Zope modifications into our locally maintained Zope version
since about 1998. Lots of merges took place without me even knowing
that something happened and without any need to understand things.
Of course, there have been occational problems and then I had
to get local understanding to fix things.
In the Zope3 forward porting case, we can instead ask the fix
author to do the port instead.
