+1. In the past I heard some rumors about test_requires not working with 
buildout and people using extra_requires for Zope packages, but you 
probably know better than I do what you're talking about.

I know that there's still a high chance that things like zope.security 
will pull in the world anyway, but any step forward is a step forward. 
Note that I *believe* a newer version of zope.security (or was it 
zope.app.security) reduced its dependencies somewhat, so you might want 
to experiment with that.

Thanks Sylvain! Reducing dependencies is quite an important topic to me
