Because that promise has been completely revoked, since add-ons
developed for old versions of CMF will not work on Zope 3 anyway. ;-)

Right, any tool that now exists must directly map unto a local
utility, and that local utility must also have the same API.

If we in CMF 2.0 feel that most tools should be made into utilities,
we could register the utilities with a name, and use the old tool
name. getToolByName could then both try local acquicistion, and do a
query for a generic interface (ICMFTool?) with the name.

The other option is to keep the tools, but also register them as
utilities. That would probably need some changes in the utility
registration, though, from the primitive implementation that is in
