I agree that it shouldn't go in zope.app.  I believe I suggested  
putting this in zc.openid, although I'm fine with zope.openid.

Placement is more a function of project or originating organization,  
rather than dependencies.  The top-level package is determined by the  
project/organization.  Normally, there should be only 2 levels of  
packages. (I screwed up with the zc.recipes package, for example.)
