While this is certainly an interesting package, I think the idea behind 
zope.browser is to keep dependencies to an absolute minimum. I'm not 
sure I see the point of just putting the *interface* "IRequestMixin" in 
zope.browser, and the implementation would almost certainly pull in more 
dependencies, right? (by the way, an interface called 'Mixin'? Isn't the 
mixin nature a property of a class, not an interface?)

I think we should be careful not to introduce more functionality into 
zope.browser right now that isn't moved from some other zope.* package. 
The goal after all, as I understand it, is to reduce installation
