Honestly, I don't know what you're comparing it to, i.e. even later
than _what_?  Fixing ZClasses for 2.8 has been in Jim's plans as long
as I can remember (about a year now), and he works on it when he can
-- there's nothing new in the above from my POV, so "even later"
doesn't make much sense to me.

That's not my call.  WRT the ZODB part, that was covered in other threads today.
