Whatever we have in Five right now seems like a good subset. I haven't felt need for much more than that anyways. We have:
- Adapters - Views - Menus - Some support for auto-generated forms
I think the main outstanding issue is interoperability between Zope 3 and Zope 2 Page Templates, which is being investigated.
Someone correct me if I missed something.
But Five has no *need* of this stuff in Zope 2, and I suspect it'll only make our life harder. Either we'll be locked into a stale Zope 2.8 version or we'll have to maintain compatibility with both Zope 3 releases and Zope 2 releases..
If someone can package up the stuff needed for Five and nothing else and wrap it up as a Zope 2 product (that fiddles with the path), fine. That's only to make things more easily deployable. Right now the hard part is however detaching Zope 3 stuff from its dependencies -- for Five you'd need an enormous chunk of Zope 3 in order to make it work. Why bother with it?
