like Zope: much more so than any change since 2.2, I think (maybe
2.0/2.1). The hardest bit is the change to the way the compiler

Yup. Also, everything I've tried (I haven't tried much) has had test
breakage. Most of this is probably shallow, but it will take some
sort it all out.
As we move toward splitting things up into eggs, people can help
getting things working on an egg-by-egg basis.
I think buildbot makes supporting Zope 3 on py2.4 and py2.5
reasonable, and a first step to making Zope 2 support py2.5. I like
the idea of dividing things up also, to help the constraints (for
instance, I don't know if anyone is going to have the time and energy
to move the zodbcode module forward to py2.5).
I glanced through some of the problems today. Most of them didn't
seem too bad, and I have RestrictedPython foo (and interest/need) to
help there on the Zope 3 side. However,
../bin/python2.5 test.py -m persistent and ../bin/python2.5 test.py -
both result in numerous errors culminating in segfaults, at least on
my AMD A64. (BTree has a bunch of errors too, but no segfault).
These might be relatively shallow too, but superficially they seem
