I expect that's Andreas's call now.  I still plug away adding patches
to the ZODB 3.2 line (which is maintained solely for the benefit of
the Zope 2.7 line).  If there won't be another 2.7-line release, I'd
be delighted to retire the ZODB 3.2 line too.

Do it one place, do "cvs diff" or "svn diff" to create a patch, then
apply the patch to the other place?  That often works fine the first

Does this require ZODB changes?  If so, ZODB 3.4.1 final
tarballs+installers have already been cut & tested (just awaiting
upload & announcements).  If I have to cut another ZODB release for
Zope 2.8.1 (which is fine, if that's what's needed), the Zope 2.8.1
release should be delayed by a day to make enough time to do that.

Sounds like starting on #c now wouldn't be a waste of time in any
case, and would leave all other options open.
