Well, it may be that we decide to embrace eggs for our packaging story, 
at least in Zope 3 (as a replacement for zpkg). At that point we should 
ask ourselves if it wouldn't be a good idea to do the same for Zope 2. 
In Zope 2, eggs could really help with the add-on story (as a more 
general replacement for Products).
