The CMF 2.1 branch uses the five.lsm 0.3 tag, which is identical to the 
trunk, except that trunk states it is going to be version 0.4.

On PyPi there are both an egg as well as a source distribution for the 
0.3 release.

The CMF trunk currently points to the five.lsm trunk, which doesn't have 
a version information inside it, as it only uses a part of the actual 
package. The version information is in the root setup.py, whereas CMF 
only pulls in the src/five/localsitemanager part of it.

Why did we do the above at all? Because we didn't want to require anyone 
to install a package for the CMF 2.1 line on top of extracting the 
tarball into the Products folder. For CMF trunk I personally think it is 
OK, to state a proper dependency in setup.py for both CMF and 
GenericSetup now and remove the five.lsm inclusion hack from CMFCore.
