Absolutely!  Those packages (that Chris mentioned in later
email) are all fairly small and I don't think we made any
major changes to them on the ZODB3-3_2-branch.  We should
be able to review the changes by hand.

I wonder, though, how hard it would be to produce a unit
test to cover the does-Zope-startup case.  That would give
us a bit more confidence about the changes we do port.  Of
course, I should actually run Zope more often as part of
the testing process.
