Let's decide that and make a release of zope.component so we could
move forward on adapting other packages to recent removal of BBB

Here's three variants:

 * Move pure python implementation to zope.hookable as a fallback.
 * Move C implementation to zope.component and drop zope.hookable
dependency at all.
 * Just drop zope.hookable dependency, providing only pure python
version of hookable.

The second (or even third, if there's no significant slowdown) variant
seems fine to me personally, because, as Tres noted, there's probably
no consumers for zope.hookable beyond zope.component, so we can safely
merge the packages.

Jim, Philipp, Marius, can you please give us rights on PYPI for
zope.component. My account is "nadako" there, so you can give it to me
and I'll add other people.

WBR, Dan Korostelev
