We're in an odd spot: the Python3 support for zope.interface mostly
works, but the class advice bits (implements, implementsOnly,
classProvides) fail silently under Python3 before 4.0.0: they literally
have no effect due to changes in class initialization machinery.
zope.interface 4.0.0 changes those silent failures into exceptions (which
is what I thought you were going to complain about).
Note as well that zope.interface 4.0.0 doesn't support Python 2.5 any longer.

I can do that, if that is the consensus.
