We had to fork the catalog (as repoze.catalog), and we've kept it forked mostly 
due to the assumptions made by zope.app.catalog (now zope.catalog) that it was 
dealing with a structure which contained a Zope 3 "site", that it was set up to 
listen for events sent by containerish Zope3 objects, and that it knew how to 
resolve document identifiers to objects.  None of these things are true when 
you try to use the software outside a Zope instance.

repoze.sendmail was a little more gratuitous (we needed to change it fast, 
without any arguments). Its changes have now actually been merged upstream to 
zope.sendmail by Fabio.
