Thinking about it more, it would actually be backward-compatible, since we never released the packages in themselves but always as part of the Zope 3 bundle. Also, even the packages that are not hooked in via zope.app.zcmlfiles are added via the automated SETUP.cfg stuff. At least this is the official story right now. :-) > > A fully backward solution would be to put all the generic package > > configuration in a new ZCML file and combine them both in > > "configure.zcml".

I hope it is avoidable with the above insight. > 3.4 is never going to be released, is it? That might bother some > people (though not me). Really? That would be a pitty, because it would allow us to have one release with the old and the new way, so the first people can migrate.
