Thinking further on this:  there is actually not much "shiny" about the
ZTK:  it is going to be equivalent to a cut-down, dependency-stripped,
bbb-cruft-sanded version of the packages already shipping with Zope
2.10.x / 2.11.x.  Until Plone quits using Zope2 altogether (likely
never, AFAIK) Plone has no direct interest in the ZTK, which is just a
layer of the Zope2 stack from Plone's perspective.
