The ingenious model of ZCML overrides.

You have a tree of ZCML files that include other files:


Parent nodes in this tree can override any directives in descendent

<includeOverrides> doesn't create a child node; it inserts the
directives directly into the current node.  This means it overrides
stuff by piggy-backing on the more general "parent nodes override
children" mechanism.

This means (counterintuitively) that even includeOverrides cannot override
anything in parent or sibling nodes.

What you need to do is move your overrides up in the include tree.

EMACS is a good OS.  The only thing it lacks is a decent text-editor.
