I know absolutely nothing about PTS, this is a Zope 3 list.

Yes it does. It says there is currently no solution for Python scripts. And we 
do not work on a solution yet, because in Zope 3 we do not do TTW

Yes, that's the point of this API.

You can always write a proposal. But I would check the existing API first.

Someone mentioned that Phillip's book has an example. I know nothing about 
Five, so I cannot comment on the rest.
