digicool has stopped distributing extension class v1.2 source on its own,
they are distributing extclass 2.0 bundled with zope. Either v1.2 or v2.0
works with Zorp, however 1.2 is primarily used for development.

v1.2 of extension class is available from debian mirrors in the

compilation instructions are included in its README file, however there's a
slight problem in the thread support of extensionclass.

you have to change the reference to "type_lock" to PyThread_type_lock, just
like it is patched in the debian sources.
