It's a good practice to fix typos and such in a separate patch/checkin,
so that those reading the diffs or patches can concentrate on what's
really done.

It's also nice to use modern python coding style (even when copy/pasting

     if prefix == "Extensions" and cfg.extensions is not None:
         r = _getPath(cfg.extensions, '', name, suffixes)
         if r is not None:
             return r

It's in a loop. The first working path is returned.

Yep :) I Cc zope-dev, and followup there.

But now that you put it in the collector it's ok. Thanks for the patch.
