I think there are two forces here:
* people want stability in the integrated whole
* enabling the individual package developer: ideally a package can be
developed by itself and if the tests run, a release can be made.
We have made good progress in enabling developers and actually going
somewhere, but we haven't been good at providing and managing a stable
foundation yet for the ZTK.
I think lots of us are currently on Zope 3.4 KGS. Grok hasn't moved off
Zope 3.4 KGS yet either, for instance.

By the way, I invite those people to document this in the Zope Toolkit
documentation. One problem I've had in the past is that I can't keep
track of what tools there are and how to use them; a single place that
gives an overview and some basic instructions would be very helpful.
