Zope doesn't (currently) include ZEO so to get an up to date ZEO we now 
have to obtain
the correct version of the stand-alone ZODB and extract the contained ZEO. 
The version
numbers of the ZEO and stand-alone ZODB are unrelated so figuring out which 
need to get ZEO is a bit of a pain.   Also, ZEO is packaged differently in 
the stand alone
ZODB than it used to be in on it's own.
