No, quite the contrary in fact. The other day I wrote a proposal that
Zope's old-style Products will turn into regular python packages using
pkg_resource's namespace package support and eggs' entry points
It will allow us to deploy old-style products as eggs (using setup.py).
The proposal explicitly mentions workingenv and zc.buildout as two
mechanisms that allow such deployment w/ Zope.
