- -1 to the conditional import; + 1 to moving the code.

We need to avoid such dependencies altogether: code which uses
'plone.portlets' should *not* be present in five:customerize. Support
for that logically belongs in 'plone.portlets' itself, or some other
code which already has that package as a dependency.
