What would be the advantage of that? It'd break every single existing
import. Most of those packages aren't reusable in the wild and
shouldn't be released outside of the Zope2 distribution.

The packages that we might want to break out (like we did with
Acquistion, ExtensionClass, DateTime) should retain their name, so
nobody has to change any code to work with them.
