If it is Zope2 specific then it should be part of Zope2: it's  
monolithic but we love it anyway.

Yuppie's suggestion is fine with me and probably the second solution  
best solution aside from just making it part of Zope2.

But that doesn't stop a bug being a bug. Dieter suggests that the bug  
is with setuptools which gives it plenty of company. as far as I know.  
Life used to be so simple with just distutils ;-)
