[PEAK] a potential patch for zconfig_loader

Ah, gotcha, thanks for the tip. Using a schema like:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='ISO-8859-1' ?>
<!DOCTYPE schema SYSTEM '../peak/src/ZConfig/doc/schema.dtd'>

<schema datatype="peak.running.commands.EventDriven.fromZConfig"

<import package="hello"/>


I can start my hello Task with a config file like:

stopAfter 5

  RunEvery 1
  Priority 1

That works fine.

Yes.  If you look at 'peak.ini', under the 'peak.running.shortcuts' 
section, you'll see that 'peak EventDriven' is just short for:

     peak zconfig.schema:pkgfile:peak.running/EventDriven.xml

So, if your schema was "myschema.xml" in "mypackage", you could do:

     peak zconfig.schema:pkgfile:mypackage/myschema.xml myconfigfile

to run "myconfigfile" using that schema.

Note, by the way, that your schema will need to "extend" the EventDriven 
schema; see the ZConfig docs for more details.
