If I would be pedantic here I'd say there is no such thing as renaming a 
permission. When the old name is gone, it is gone. There's no mechanism 
similar to the BBB imports for the permission ids.

Actually, it is more than just a test dependency. The toplevel 
configure.zcml conditionally configures the browser subpackage whenever 
zope.app.form is available. This zope.app.form conditional is not even 
"enough", as sometimes you can still have zope.app.form on your path, 
but zcml directives like addMenuItem and editForm used in 
zc.catalog.browser's configure.zcml might not have been configured.

I could imagine we change zc.catalog so that the toplevel configure.zcml 
never includes the browser subpackage's configure.zcml and people that 
need the ZMI code, need to include the zc.catalog.browser subpackage 
themselves. This would still leave the test dependency (which is 
annoying but alas), but at least make the zc.catalog easier to reuse.
