OK, so the buildout.cfg for zope.testbrowser 3.5.1 (the version now
linked into the Zope trunk) has:

 mechanize = 0.1.9
 setuptools = 0.6c9
 zope.testbrowser =
 zope.publisher = 3.5.1
 zope.app.publication = 3.4.2

The version of zope.app.publication linked into the Zope trunk is 3.5.0
(bumped from 3.4.3).  However, zope.app.publication is not listed as any
kind of dependency in either version's setup.py.  In fact, it isn't
imported (or referenced in ZCML) anywhere other than in the buildout.cfg :(.
