Hi guys,

I would like to remove zope and zope2 from extra, as they are not correctly 
packaged and i have the following points to dont use then anymore:

- They have only 0.10 ~ 0.15 users
- They are not correctly packaged
- Zope3 is not heavily used (its libs are quite a lot used)
- Plone does not work with this zope2 package (which renders it almost 
- With the new tecnologies like buildout there is no need for building a Zope 

Note that i will keep zope.interface in extra, as it is a very used package 
and it is a dep for twisted.

So i would like to remove then (zope2 and zope) asap and kill 2 bugs on my 

Thoughts  ?
