There are several ways of doing it based on your religion of distutils.

Right, the Zope 3 releases are not eggified yet.

That would be the easiest. Download the "tar.gz" file from the cheeseshop, 
extract it and then copy or link the source to the correct location.

Eventually, the preferred way will be to build applications using only eggs, 
like I did in z3c.formdemo. This process, however, is poorly documented at 
this point and requires significant effort on your side to study how buildout 
and setuptools work.

So for now, copying the code to the correct location is okay. You can also 
always use checkouts as well, of course.
