Thinking now. If we want local persistent permissions to be considered
dead and we want to discourage their usage, may be the package should
be called "zope.app.localpermission" then? If so, we could also move
its ZMI views there and forget about that package. :) It's just
because "zope.localpermission" name sounds like "some nice part of
zope framework", but in reality, the functionality provided by the
package is deprecated for use withing _the framework_.

But, do we really want it deprecated and dead? May be there's some
nice use cases for it? Anyone?
