I mean, we don't use all zope packages in our test dependency
if we develop eggs. What was the reason to use a subset of
of zope packages for egg testing?
extras_require = dict(
test = [
'some more zope.* packages but why not all zope.*'

Is there a benefit to not depend on all zope.* packages
in each egg test setup if we do a transition to indvidual
I understand the benefit to have smaller dependencies
in eggs, but I still think a egg should run all tests
we have in the zope namespace. Like we did in our old
python test.py -s zope -pv
could be now in a egg:
bin\test -s zope -pv
This whould allow us to run all zope.* tests
during egg development.
