Sorry, but we do this all the time. Thanks to buildout and explicit
version pins its a piece of cake to get a zope.i18n 3.6 or whatever
version used instead of the zope.i18n shipped inside the Zope2 tarball.

I haven't done a project for more than two years now where I didn't
upgrade one of the zope.* packages with some newer version.


P.S. Note that to make this happen we added the whole fake-zope-eggs
story to the zope2install recipe, so all the zope.* packages inside the
tarball are exposed as if they where installed as eggs.
