Without a committment to a "zapi-style" (i.e., permananent, canonical
API import module), I am -1 on "convenience imports":  they mask
dependencies, help create cycles, etc.

In *this* case (upgrading to a new major version of the whole Zope2
appserver framework) a deprecation seems warranted:  nobody is going to
"accidentally" upgrade to Zope 2.12 and start seeing deprecatino
warnings they don't expect.
