Of course, we should also provide a way to get an interface or something else describing the configuration for introspection purposes. Waiting one or two Zope versions for that to get a non-purging GS import handler when

behaviour) would be a shame though.

You don't have to wait for for new Zope versions. Defining the interface officially in Zope 2.10, 2.11 and trunk will raise no problems. I have no problems with putting this into the official release branches - or?

My personal opinion: I'd rather see the interface-based solution in a few weeks or a couple months (the next Zope release) than the, umh, less-than-professional solution that will stick around forever. As such solutions have a tendency to do. "It works now" absolves everyone from the task to come back later and improve the solution, so no one does.

I agree in principle, however this has been left unresolved for far too long. I'm glad things are happening now, though!
