Of corse do we all need the UI part for manage the components
we install. But the old style ZMI views are obsolate this days.
Right now we have to write this part for each project by ourself
if they need to depend on z3c.form and z3c.pagelet.

Yes, I don't use it but I think we should have something 
available as a starting point for newcomers.

This could be something like zopeproject or a minimalistic
setup with as less as possible zope.*, z3c.* and repoze packages.

I think we should take a look if we can build a minimal 
setup which Plone, Grok and other projects can use. Do you think
there could be such a based configuration? Or is there to much
difference in each of Plone, Grok, repoze etc?

The question is, can we find browser page pattern which Grok,
Plone, repoze and others can use? Everybody needs to have at
least management views for manage the components they install
in some ways. So the question is not if we skip the ZMI or not.
I think the question is can we improve and share such
views in the different projects or do we have to develop views
for each of them?
