Eek, I started mixing up ztk and

I didn't look too deep into Zope2 because my intention was more for
asking whether packages like need to be tested and
they are only part of ztk 1.0 zopeapp.cfg,
but now I had second look into versions.cfg of zope and plone and I am
seeing that the latest plone still pins versions of ztk 1.0 zopeapp,
and even is a dependency somewhere in plone.

Aww, too bad.

Best regards,
