repoze.zope2 was written to get pre-eggified, pre-WSGI-aware Zope
(<=2.11.x) deployable using eggs and Paste.  2.12 is eggified, and
speaks a kind of pidgin WSGI;  repoze.zope2 is likely still useful,
becuase it is more "fluent" in WSGI.  See below for futures.

response.write() is the other one I know about.  Getting it to do the
Right Thing(TM) under WSGI is going to be tricky, I think.

If it gets that far by Zope 2.13, then we can likely retire repoze.zope2.
