Hi Roger,

Thank you very much for your comment, and sorry for my late reply.
I did not receive your post I don't know why...

No. But zmi.core might depend on zope.app.* packages.

I won't break BBB as much as possible, at least I'd like to keep persistent 
data compatibility...

Yes, my intention was to make sure that after we copy files from zope.app.* to 
then existing tests which were originally in zope.app.* have to work in

Hmm, I'm not sure yet...

Sounds good idea.

For now, I don't have clear image yet. I'm checking all zope.app.* packages and 
sure all tests pass. And maybe I will review current package dependencies.
After that, I will copy zmi parts to zmi.core one by one. I'm sorry but I'm 
very slow
for some reasons, I cannot make an exact schedule yet.
