Hey Dan,

Thanks very much for this analysis and summary! My comments below.

I'm afraid I don't know either. If we want to merge them we'd need to do 
some analysis of places where they are used. For now, move them both over.

Then it should stay where it is. :)

A clear case of leaving it behind to die too.

Yes, TTW in Zope 3 is currently dead, let's not worry about supporting 
it in the Zope Framework (we don't even have a ZMI there). Let it stay

I will note that zope.app.applicationcontrol contains code that looks 
reusable, even though it is indeed a bit more "application-like". Grok's 
grokui.admin uses it so it'd be interesting to extract this code into a 
library we can use.

I also just discovered zope.app.applicationcontrol doesn't seem to 
declare its dependencies right - it appears to depend on 
zope.app.appsetup for instance while it doesn't actually declare it.

Anyway, we can always move zope.ManageApplication into 
zope.app.applicationcontrol when we want to, so leave it in 
zope.app.security for now.
