I don't know what you mean by this.

If you mean patching the docutils, then as far as I'm concerned, it  
will never land in the Zope 3 trunk.

The right solution to this problem is to write applications that use  
docutils correctly, not to patch docutils.

I can understand why this solution was used for Zope 2, at least in  
the short run.  I don't think it's a good long-ter solution.
