Most of that work has been done on the trunk.  The 'five-integration'
branch changes consist largely of:

 - Setting up an 'svn:external' link to the Zope X3 3.0 repository
   (which is on a branch, pruned to include only the packages which were
   actually released with 3.0).

 - Importing the Five product.

 - Un-monkey-fying Five's monkey patches.

As soon as we settle the question of how ZODB gets stitched in (I prefer
the 'svn:external' mode myself, but that is just a preference), that
branch should be easily merged.
