I was reviewing the proposal and had a thought about naming. There is no real 
reason to use the zopeskel namespace, especially for the core package. 
Shouldn't we make the namespace more inviting to non Zope projects?

I took a look on pypi and there are current packages named skel and skeleton. 
One abandoned package is called skeletor. It had similar goals way back when. 
That would be a fitting name, but would probably be confusing given there is 
already a skeletor package.

Just thought I'd voice my concern before we got too far into the renaming 
process. The ZopeSkel egg could still serve as the all-in-one for Zope/Plone
