optionstorage is heavily zope-specific, but it's name communicates
nothing of the sort.  I don't think it's polite for us to pollute the
top level namespace with many zope-specific packages. So, I think its
place is in one of the zope namespaces.

I just wanted to correct that before the first release (and before we
have to maintain backwards compatibility).

Great, that sounds like a good place!
