+  This header can be set to ``application`` for collection
+  distribution to indicate that the distribution is not a normal
+  collection that should have a `setup.py` file for distutils, but
+  should have a more conventional **configure** / **make** / **make
+  install** build process that creates an application-specific
+  installation tree (for example, `/usr/local/Zope3`).
