zopectl (>= 0.3.0) does not depend on zope and can be used with CVS
snapshots, or multiple versions concurrently installed. You can configure
ZOPE_HOME SOFTWARE_HOME and INSTANCE_HOME in a simple way and it will work.
It, by now, only conflicts with zope (>= 2.7)

... simmetry?

Because anything is configurable: i suggested in README.Debian a simple
guide-line to have multiple zope instances, but files can be placed elsewhere.
For example a reasonable configuration may have different users, with
different home directories, and place all instance files in there.
Briefly, why should i hardcode a path if it can be avoided? My efforts where
about configurability: i would loose this feature, so my efforts.
