For long term stability and maintainability I would strongly recommend
rewriting your application to remove ZClasses.
Depending on your application(s) this can be a non-trivial task, but once it
is done you can return to standard zope releases.
This is a business risk/reward situation: how important are the ZClass apps
to your business? Can you afford to have them stop working? Are willing to
maintain your own ZClass patches (Dieter has provided a starting point, but
what if Dieter "gets hit by a bus")?
I have rewritten ZClass apps twice now, and it can be a serious PITA, but
the peace-of-mind, ongoing product stability and maintainability was well
