Yes, changing the existing interface would require a 4.0. If you'd add
a new interface extending the IPasswordManager one, we could do it in
a 3.x release.

A new zope.password 3.x release could go into both ZTK 1.1 and 1.0, a
backwards incompatible 4.0 would have to wait for ZTK 1.2.

Introducing a new dependency on zope.password will mean a 2.14 release.

This depends on the changes in AccessControl and how backwards
compatible they are.

If backwards compatibility is preserved, this can go into Zope 2.13
and trunk, since we allow minor feature additions in the stable
series. Zope 2.12 is at a 2.12.15 release now and at the end of its
lifecycle - it'll only see bugfixes.
