If the z3c.* packages are being maintained, but not by folks who can
resolve that issue on Windows, then we should do the testing on a
platform where the maintainers *can* get the tests to pass. Having

who don't need or care about those packages.

Why waste any resources on tests if nobody is going to find and fix
