- -1;  a "meta" egg would work fine as a place to specify hard-wired
dependencies.   Not every Zope3 user is going to be using buildout.
Note that such a "mega-egg" would likely specify the "transitive
closure" of its dependency graph, as well.

Whether such a mega-egg is called an "official Zope release" is a
different issue, but that would be one way to let folks download a
"known good" integration (a distribution?) of the various satellite

+1 for avoiding gratuitous version-specific dependencies in "library"
eggs;  unless there is a known incompatibility, eggs should specify
their dependencies by name.
