KGS is two things:
* KGS the software
* KGS the concept
KGS the concept will have a life outside of the Zope world. KGS the
concept is very easy to implement; you just make available on some URL a
buildout versions.cfg, or you run your own package index.
I'll note that buildout seems to be clawing to a life outside of the
Zope world; I know of several Django users that adopted it. It'd be much
more popular if we had a good bunch of beginner level tutorials for it.
Anyway, we've already decided to use setup.py dependencies for API
compatibility. That's the best you're going to get out of us for a while.
