Hello zope-dev,

As you may already know, there is an effort to port zope packages to Python 3 going on. As part of this effort we want to port zope.testbrowser.

Unfortunately, mechanize package, that zope.testbrowser depends on has no py3 support. There is an unfinished effort at [1], however, after closer examination of the codebase and state of the port, it seems more practical to switch internal implementation of zope.testbrowser to webtest.

So far, it seems webtest has all the features needed to do the switch. I started a branch at github ([2]) to track work in progress. The goal is to make most (say 80%) of existing tests to work without modifications under new implementation.
