Hmm, the use case for slugs was to support "application with separately installed extensions"; Fred, I think your view is prejudiced by the fact that you don't have any need for pluggability / extensibility. Stephan is arguing for finer-grained configurations, which is likely to be better for reuse, at the cost of *reduced* convenience. >> Really?

I don't know what is blocking a 3.4 release. AFAIK, eggification is on the roadmap for 3.5, right? So we should be focused on stabilizing the "last zpkg build", while still allowing the eggified / broken-out project model to move forward.
