It is true that we are unlikely to make another 2.9.x release, absent a
 serious security bug.  However, in Zope 2.9, the Five product was
maintained as an SVN external:  the branch currently points to:

I could certainly see shipping a 1.3.12 version of the product (or a
1.4.5), which people could then install in their $INSTANCE_HOME,
overriding the one in $SOFTWARE_HOME.  In fact, the changelog on the 1.4
branch seems to indicate that there is fix for the same problem already
checked in.
