The specific extra plumbing needed by third-party products is getting
$INSTANCE_HOME/Products directory (and the PRODUCTS_PATH bit, too) into
the Products package *before* importing *anything* from the product.

I would prefer that this wiring be spelled from unit tests as:

  from Zope.App.startup import configureProductsPath

but that spelling isn't there yet.
