Not really, that for me is a non-backwards-compatible change, 'cos it
requires me to rethink and recode, if not now then at some point in the
being, just pointing to the zope packages via deferred imports. Of
course, the deferred imports generate deprecation warnings when executed.
Because they'll go away.
Because it's clutter. And because there should preferrably be only one
way to do things. If we left all the old ways around indefinitely, we'd
have code that uses two or more ways of doing the same thing all over
the place. It would set bad examples, to begin with.
Theuni was recently very confused about the difference between three
different APIs that do exactly the same thing (registering a utility).
If we had deprecated at least the most confusing one of them (ztapi)
already, it would probably have been much clearer.
