Sounds very good to me.  However, I guess the biggest bulk of the work
will be to make the existing Products out there eggs, which is quite a
tedious task.

A bit off topic: What about entry points for Zope 3 packages for their
ZCML?  Right now, when I easy_install a Zope 3 package, I still need to
set up the ZCML by hand.  I'm not sure that this is a sensible default.
