Currently, there are these zope base packages and they use various
installation directories:

directory	package		ZOPEDIR (or corresponding one)
www/zope	zope-2.2.2	${PREFIX}/lib/zope
www/zope25	zope-2.6.2	${PREFIX}/lib/zope
www/zope29	zope-2.9.4	${WEBBASEDIR}/Zope29 (${PREFIX}/www/Zope29)
www/zope3	zope3-3.2.1	${PREFIX}/share/zope3

zope and zope25 base packages should be replaced with zope29 based
packages since it is Zope's stable release.

Anyway, zope packages' installation directory should be based on
common policy.  I think that it is better to change zope29's ZOPEDIR
to ${PREFIX}/share/zope (or ${PREFIX}/zope?).

Is there any comment?
