Hehe :)

Well, I strongly dislike this decision we did for zope, as it creates
much hassle for users. But users is what we do this distribution for.

But whatever: I assume somebody made sure this annoyance got documented
properly in the release notes to avoid users misfile bugs and send
confusing reports? As FESCo is indirectly responsible for zope missing
now I assume FESCo itself also directly or indirectly took care of
documenting this properly?
