A week was a bit pessimistic here, products are gone from the 3.2 branch!

I have just signed up for helping out on Zope 2 eggification on that 
sprint as well. I'm sure we can get there for Zope 2.12. If we are able 
to make a Zope 2.11 release as an egg, is yet to be decided. 2.10 is 
definitely not going to see an official egg release anymore.

3.2:  I gave my comments on plone.org on the two PLIP's in question.

3.3: I should probably start writing my own PLIP's soon :)
