Using the package attribute is better, since then the local package is the 
directory the file is in. The file attribute is mainly used to point to a 
file not called configure.zcml.

Right, so that what books and other documentation is for. Teh books, for 
example, explain what meta.zcml does. In short, it declares new ZCML 
directives and thus meta.zcml files must be processed before any 
configure.zcml file.
