The 2.2 release of z3c.testsetup pulls in zope.app.testing only for the
internal tests. It is not a requirement any more for simply using the
package (except you want Zope integration tests, of course). The 'hard'
requirements now are: setuptools, zope.testing and martian only.

In fact I would be happy to see the package running also in non-Zope
projects. Didn't try it myself yet, though. Please tell what you need.
Possibly I can help with that.

Kind regards,
