If you're using Zope 2.9, the configuration schema allows adding additional sections. Documentation still needs to be written (unless someone snuck it in while I wasn't looking), but information can be found in the main configuration schema in lib/python/Zope2/Startup/zopeschema.xml. That would get around the location issue, and let you add configuration settings so you can refer to additional data files as well, if any are needed. Explicit references beat implicit sniffing of location! -Fred -- Fred L.
