I'm fine with easy_install for installing Zope3 and the z3c packages but at 
this time I don't want to use it for my own projects.
But when I install Zope3 (for example by easy_install zope.component) I don't 
find any mkzopeinstance. I know about zopeproject but that creates an egg 
what I don't want. How can I get mkzopeinstance with easy_install? I haven't 
found anything in PyPi.
