+1 for organizing a "Zope 3" team, may be we should re-activate
zope3-dev list?  Well, ripping out ZMI and other things can be
discussed there.  I think "Zope 3" should bring many packages
in 'z3c' namespace into core "Zope 3" (no need to change namespace)
Documenting how Zope 3 packages can be used together to build
application is also very important.
