+1 It's always been another CMF package for me but one that I couldn't  
drop into "Products". Leaving aside the discussions about whether this  
is the right way to do things some of the sites we're working on were  
started before everything was setup to work properly with buildout and  
we still have other stuff in there which still won't.

Zope2 parts aren't suitable for running as independent packages. So  
making things like the CMF dependent on a Zope2 release rather than  
the various packages makes sense.
