The "minimal setup" is called Zope Toolkit. None of the mentioned
projects is interested in any of the Zope 3 packages, except where those
are still tied into the whole.

+1, to declaring Zope 3 dead. That should allow us to refactor the
remaining packages much more aggressively and reduce the dependencies.

I don't see any example where something in this direction could be
shared. The entire model of "context/@@standard_macros" to provide a
unified look and feel hasn't worked out, from what I can tell.

On the technical side at least Plone is going to switch over to
Chameleon as its page template story and use Grok patterns for building
pages. I don't think this kind of buy-in is something everyone else is
willing to share.
