You're right. We can. Someone will have to write that. I suspect that
starting from the current zcml support, all that's necessary is to
strip out permission support.
I understand the historical reasons behind these dependencies, but I
genuinely think we should pick a few libraries that are "useful" to
the outside world (zope.interface, zope.component,
zope.configuration, zope.annotation, zope.event come to mind) and
work to make these have "clean" dependencies.
Most or all of the ones you mention already do. zope.component's
dependencies are clean as long as you don't try to use the zcml
support. zope.annotation is the only one I'm not sure about but I bet
it's dependencies are modest.
