Shouldn't need them, unless we are somehow createing persistent objects
from that package / product. I thought all that stuff happened at
runtime, with no persistence?

I'm not convinced that anything which is this tightly coupled to Zope
needs to be a package, rather than a product. I don't think the
"package zealots" get the fact that purity is not a win if we have to
distort the rest of the application to satisfy it.
