On the subject of deprecation, for the record, I think removing ZClasses is a mistake. They have legitimate uses. They have major flaws too. It would help if we would more clearly document their limitations and pitfalls, rather than get rid of them, at least until we have something better,
To relax this discussion a bit: the original plan was to deprecate ZClassesto tell that developer that it is using a somewhat unsupport ancient method to develop with Zope. There was no plan to remove ZClasses after two major releases as usually but to have an option to kick same at some point when they should raise major problems (I know you had some work to get ZClasses working again in Zope 2.8)...well, the point is that there is too much scary code around in Zope 2 where only possibly only one person knows about the deepest internals.
