I handle pluggable auth components in code right now.

Anyway, I think the following will and should happen:

* the Zope Toolkit project will continue to remove the ZMI from the toolkit.

* the ZMI will still be available as code, it just won't be in the 
toolkit. If enough people are interested in maintaining this codebase to 
make sure it continues to work, it'll be around. It's just not very 
focused code, and it's scattered all over the place.

* I'd recommend some people get together and focus on building a much 
smaller, more tightly focused replacement of the ZMI that does the 
things people find important but is just a single package (or a few).
