Thanks, that was the kind of solution I was hoping for. I guess that if
you want to use this method, you need to install the products under

It would be nice, if it was documented somewhere, how to upgrade from
the previous version - e.g. in the FAQ.

You can have more than one Zope 3 installed, e.g. you can install Zope
3.2.1 in parallel to 3.2.0 and switch your instance over to 3.2.1 (by
editing the start scripts in $INSTANCE/bin). You can also install Zope
3.2.1 into the place where 3.2.0 was installed; your instance should
continue to work. Such a thing isn't recommended when upgrading between
major versions, though (3.2 to 3.3).
