I'd like to be able to use zope.password without zope.component for
some of my tiny old Pylons-based projects, that's why I'm trying to
avoid dependency on it. I believe that repoze guys will also be quite
happy, if it didn't pull unneeded (for them) dependency.

I'd be fine with an "extra" requirement, but others seem to be against that. :-/

Steering group? ;-)
