If that release doesn't bust anything over the next day or two, I will
likely push out a 4.0.0 final by the end of the week.

I have one question:  the "zope.location" import-time monkeypatch is a
wart in zope.security:  could we add a ZCML directive for doing that at
configuration execution time instead?

We are essentially blocked on figuring out how to deal with instance /
moudle attribute names in pickles:  they need to be "native strings"
under both Python2 and Py3k.  I'm pretty hopeful that Pycon will let us
figure that out.

I'm agreed for the most part.  Can we make it a priority to fix the
failing nightly tests?  Also, is somebody running / reporting tests via
Travis?  Where are those results going?
