As far as PackageManagement, you could take a look at my PatchKit
http://www.zope.org/Members/haqa/PatchKit - Version 4.2.0 or newer (4.3.0
will contain a couple of minor fixes to this patch).

As far as the importance of scripting to the common or garden Zope product
authors, like me, without the ability to run one of the scripts in my Zope
folder, this patch will stop working. How will anyone elses Package Managers
get new/updated product details?
