Bug Description

I got this after installing zope.interface 3.6.3 from the tarball.

The problem is that InterfaceClass defines __eq__ but not __hash__.

I workarounded the problem by adding a

  def __hash__(self):
    return id(self)

...but I don't know if it's a proper solution.

I don't think 'id(self)' is the right hash value: items which compare equal are also supposed to have the same hash value. Likely we should be using the hash of the fully-qualified name.

Changed in zope.interface:

To get the buildout bootstrapped under Python3, I did::

 $ svn cat svn://svn.zope.org/repos/main/zc.buildout/branches/2/bootstrap/bootstrap.py > boostrap3.py
 $ /opt/Python-3.2.0/bin/python3 boostrap.py

Note that the Sphinx dependencies for the 'docs' part won't build, so skip that part::

 $ bin/buildout install test python

but I can't run the tests::

 $ bin/test --all

Turns out the only sane way to test zope.interface under Python3 is:

  $ /path/to/nonvirtual/Python-3.x/bin/python3 setup.py test
