I would definitley be in favour of mentioning it in this file.
I belong to the group of people who tend to forget this kind
of things that have to be done but look into README.Debian
for any useful information first. So I would be happy to exactly
find what to do to get ZMS working. BTW - I would mention
it also in NEWS.Debian to leave administrators a note about
the change that they have something todo.

I do not know how it is done there but I could imagine the
following general approach: A standardized debconf
question that asks for
1. Version of Zope (in case more than one version is installed)
2. instance name (and location)
Do the necessary dzhandle stuff according to the answers of these
questions. In case a new zope version is installed after zope-zms
(opr packages like that) you should use dpkg-reconfigure to change
the settings done above.
IMHO, this would be of great help for admins and would save them
the work to dig for the information in README.Debian.

Thanks for your effort
