In this case, you totally misread my post. It broke for all users of 
zope.component, and I never, once, made the argument that Chameleon was 
part of Plone or should be driven purely by Plone's needs. I have no 
such pretentions, nor does anyone else I know, about this, or zope.* or 
the CMF package or, well, anything that is not expressly part of Plone.

That particular discussion is over, though, and I have no interest in 
having it again.
