That's what Zope 3 does (it's a standard distutils installer). It makes
it hard to install several Zope 3 versions at the same time. Or perhaps
that's just because it install itself into site-packages?
Anyway, I would rather see the Zope installer to be self-contained wrt
Python. In fact, I also wish that the Zope 2 and 3 installers were the
same so that we'd only have to maintain and support one installation
scheme. I don't particularly care about the paths. I think the
politically correct destination is Program Files, though it is quite
annoying for the shell due to the space.
