Why does this even have to go to FESCO in the first place ? We should 
just make a Call For Submissions for packagers to try Alan's idea and 
package python 2.4 with zope, and it should just go through the regular 
review process... If it's really too difficult to do, we'll either have 
noone willing to do the work, or the submitted packages will have too 
many problems to go through review. Just follow the process...
