The closest technical definition of packages in the Zope Toolkit is
currently "what Zope2 (or Grok) needs of Zope 3, minus the stuff it
shouldn't need, plus the general useful stuff".

This comes down to a list of about 70 packages right now, where ideally
it should be closer to 50 after some more dependency cleanup. The
"general useful stuff" are things like zope.intid, zope.keyreference and
zope.catalog if I remember Theuni's mail correctly.

ZDecoy, eh Zope 3 consisted of over 140 packages, so I do see a very
clear difference between the two. That is not to say, repoze is based on
the Zope Toolkit :)
