I'd like to mention repoze.bfg here. It takes a fairly small set of  
zope.* packages. What the ZTK is will be finally defined by the  
included packages. From a user's (developing with ZTK) perspective,  
I'd appreciate a small good documented well tested and stable set of  
tools to build web applications on regardless of which server or which  
db I want to use. Christian's list represents that very well, IMHO I'd  
kick a few packages I don't use at all. And where is zope.catalog? BTW  
z3c.* packages in the ZTK would baffle me a lot, OTOH renaming z3c  
packages just to fit into the ZTK seems a bit unorthodox.

Very important are the tools and best practices surrounding the ZTK.  
Where do I start to get a state of the art but simple and inviting -  
from a developer's perspective - web application?
