We've been using such a setup for years and have never run into
any serious problems with the traceback sometimes mentioning
source file paths don't exist on the target machine.

BTW: I was talking about a setup where the developer puts the
code under version control. I'm not suggesting to do this for
the Zope repository (or any other upstream repository).
