F7 Zope package

It was nice to see that zope is one of the packages available for
installation in F7.  Unfortunately, the package won't work on F7
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=238809). The
maintainer that received the bug report suggested that I make some noise
on the devel list, so here I am.  The problem is that the zope version
packaged for F7 won't run with python 2.5.x (nor, to my knowledge will
other zope versions).  The Zope corporation used to supply "binary" rpms
where the python interpreter that was appropriate for the zope version
was installed in the zope directory tree.  They have discontinued this,
but it seems like a good solution for this particular problem.

Zope is an excellent platform for serving web-based apps, and is well
worth having available as part of the fedora installation.  Hopefully,
it will be packaged properly.
