zope.testbrowser-caused WebTest version conflict.

I've no idea why these errors disappeared.

I plan to release zope.testbrowser 5.0.0 this week.  It should fix these
(and probably cause lots of pain elsewhere, if people use undocumented
internals like .mech_browser directly, which they do).

I basically chickened out.

IIRC the new webtest-based zope.testbrowser breaks API pretty hard (e.g.
you can't use zope.app.testing.functional.FunctionalTestLayer any more;
you must create a WSGITestLayer from I-forgot-what-zope.-package).

What's worse, it lacks documentation for how you're supposed to migrate
from older zope.testbrowser versions (<=4.x) to newer versions (5.x).

I will not do a release until this documentation exists.

Could you add a line to let's say CHANGES.txt about this?
The idea would be to really block a release.
Not that someone comes around and pushes the release out half baked.
