Can't be worse then Xen afaics. Or will we throw that out, too, as
upstream doesn't make sure it runs on latest kernels? Ohh wait, I
suppose Xen is special?

I'd prefer some misfiled bugs and confusing reports (*if* they happen)
over lots of users that get confused and disappointed if zope is
vanishing suddenly.

/me wonders how many confusing reports we'll get like this: "I tried to
yum update my system but yum boils out due to missing deps. Seems python
2.5 is missing for zope. What did I wrong or how do I fix this?"
