These packages have hairy interdependencies on lots of other things.
Like code in AccessControl modifies code inside DocumentTemplate,
DocumentTemplate imports from AccessControl at the same time. Or
Zope2.App needs HelpSys which in turn relies on ZCTextIndex. There's
many more of these examples.

Before we could think about splitting out any of these, we'd need to
clean up those dependencies. At least AccessControl has seen a lot of
changes in current Zope trunk compared to 2.12.x, so I'd be hesitant
to split it out right now.
