I understood both comments as positive votes and have done the dirty
work of moving CMF trunk into separate parts now. I haven't moved the
2.1 branches yet as it was done for CMFCore.

I haven't updated the install_requires of the individual eggs yet. But
if you for example "easy_install CMFCalendar" you should get a working
system including its depdendencies which probably includes the rest of
CMF as well. The same goes for the other options, so installing
CMFDefault will pull in DCWorkflow and CMFTopic will probably include
both CMFDefault and DCWorkflow. Careful dependency analysis is needed
here, though.

Sounds good - except for the kitchensink name ;)
