I am and anyone not using Grok or BFG should be. The Zope 3 KGS maintains 
package compatibilities that reach beyond the Zope 3 Toolkit.

For example, it maintains compatibility over a very large set of z3c packages.

I think boxing in Zope 3 being the ZMI app is not useful. I have not used the 
ZMI since 2 years now and I am still considering myself writing Zope 3 apps.

The installation story today is: Roll your own configuration of ZCML.

I am not interested about that.

Again, I think Zope 3, the set of packages, which is a superset of the Toolkit 
KGS is very important to maintain. I think even for Grok people, since the 
exposed z3c libraries are widely useful.

I have no problem keeping the Zope 3 KGS releases alive. Sooner or later we 
should stop the large TAR ball releases though.
