Part of Zope version 2.8 and up, that's the problem. If you were to  
run a clean Zope 2.7.x, downloaded a release version of CMF 1.5.x and  
ran the unit tests, would you expect to see any breakage? I wouldn't  
want to see that at all if I were a normal user. Of course I  
*absolutely hate* to see that as a CMF developer in the same  
situation ;)
