I think the ZTK should be a smaller thing, but we need to find what that
smaller thing is first. I agree with the general idea underlying this
move, just not the way it was done, disclaiming responsibility.
I'm quite sure that most of the zope.app.* packages that were dropped
are just not very useful anymore. But we should drop them responsibly.
