Could you outline what the first step would be to create an alpha release list 
for 2.0? We could manually include an sdist of the ZODB 4 py3 branch to make 
the tests pass under Python 3.

Is anyone here willing to start a buildbot using Python 3.3 to test the ZTK?

Yeah, none of the 4.0 packages do.

Since I was unwilling to change all u'...' to u('...'), most packages 
currently only have Python 3.3 support. By the time ZTK 2.0 will be released, 
I think most people will have switched to Python 3.3.

Some of the zope.app packages (the ones not deprecated) should stay or simply 
be renamed to not being called zope.app.*.

Yep, already done for all 4.0 packages.

> - Update to ZODB 4

This will be a requirement for Py3 support or is anyone willing to backport 
all the changes to ZODB3? :-)

We will also need to add a few packages, such as BTrees, persistent, 
transaction, etc. and deprecate/remove some others like zope.broken, 
zope.untrustedpython, zope.fixers, and zope.apidoc.
