We are speaking about development, not about production.

Do you understand why?

In my view, refreshing should work with Five.

For this to work, we almost sure need to tell Five that the product
was refreshed such that Five can reprocess the "*.zcml" files for the

@James: you may try this: refresh your product, then refresh Five.
If this succeeds, then a technique similar to the RefreshTool may be
