So what do you do instead?
How do people get a zope 3 project/application/whatever up and running?

That is getting a bit old. The confusion from having this cruft lying 
around (in the same way as accidentally released packages) is causing a 
lot more hurt tham people who're already using this (and hence already 
have a local copy of the egg, which they can keep using should no egg be 
available on pypi) would experience if they went away.

Yes, ideally there should be some way to hide them on pypi such that 
setuptools still finds them but that they don't strip up unsuspecting 
users. Does pypi support this?

At the *very* least it's take about 2 minutes for a package manager to 
put a large "DO NOT USE - THIS IS ONLY HERE TO SUPPORT EXISTING SETUPS" 
at the top of the text on pypi to stop innocent bystanders getting 
caught out.

cheers,
