I expect to see Zope2 trunk move to using the ZTK versions list quite
soon:  more than that, I'm willing to to the work to see that it happens
(verifying that everything passes / works with the change), and give
Hanno the patch to make it so, assuming he doesn't get around to it.

If the release manager group gets consensus quickly on how their
projects' interests align in the ZTK, then the fork can go away.  Until
then, pushing changes into the ZTK without consulting those projects'
needs is premature.
