He he, yep, you are right. The point I was trying to make is that unscrewing 
the functional tests dependencies is a pointless exercise since you want to 
demonstrate the functionality in one more realistic environment. Like you 
said. And those dependencies might not match my use of the package.

BTW, I think you guys did a good job of separating the real and testing 
dependencies for the Zope packages.
