See my answer there :-)

The DirectoryResource was creating page template resources for these
extensions, so I just copied the behaviour. I also see the case when
simple static HTMLs are needed, I think those cases are most,
actually. But pagetemplate resources will work for non-templated HTMLs
as well, and people can simply not include zope.ptresource
configure.zcml and configure the resource factory for extensions they
need. I guess most people won't even install zope.ptresource though,
as it's not very useful. ZRT resources are more appropriate for
dynamic css's and javascripts, so I think users will prefer it (BTW,
it also needs to be adapted for new package).

Okay, that's done :-)

I'll leave it there for now, until XMLRPC and FTP refactorings.
There's some PITA with functional tests for this module (or it's just
me with not enough experience, whatever), so it'll take some time. I'd
like other changes to be merged soon.

Sorry, I also didn't catch up with the list recently, so I don't know
about the "new KGS system" yet. :-) I'll read about it later.
