If "install GenericSetup 1.1 + Five 1.2" is indeed a problem that makes 
sense to me. And as long as the GenericSetup trunk is in maintenance 
mode I have no objections against your BBB code on the trunk.

But as soon as we add new features to GenericSetup we need a branch for 
GenericSetup 1.1 maintenance. At that time I'd like to remove Zope 2.8 
BBB on the trunk.
