Sigh, I didn't realize zope.app.rotterdam was actually loaded by 
zope.app/configure.zcml. Gah.

I think this definitely should be fixed in Zope proper 
(zope.app/configure.zcml should be minimal). We might also want to think 
about doing our own site bootstrapping and forget about 
zope.app/configure.zcml altogether. There's a lot more in 
zope.app/configure.zcml that we can skip (which should make [re]starts 
faster, for example).

I'll investigate and report back.
