Great, thanks very much!  I know from experience how tedious / painful
that kind of work is.

I know of several kinds of dependencies:

 - Non-conditional imports of the target product in "mainline"
   code.  These must be represented in 'install_requires' code.

 - Conditional imports in mainline code.  I'm not quite sure how
   to deal with these, but am template to treat them the same for
   now as the "harder" imports.

 - Imports which occur only in test code.  These should be captured
   in 'tests_require'.

 - Implicit imports in ZCML (via dotted names).  For now, we should
   capture thses as 'install_requires'.  In the long term, I am tempted
   to make them part of an "extra" (yes, I know Jim hates them, but the
   only other choice is to multiply packages).  E.g.:

      extras_require={'zcml': [....]}

 - Implicit imports in GS profile code.  I think these have to be
   extras, as well.  Again, the other choice would be to move the
   profiles out into separate eggs (which might be cleaner).

Heh.  That is a "give them something to change" gambit pawn. ;)
