I'm pretty sure collective.tin and collective.mercury are intended to be 
standalone. collective.rope, from what I understand, has Archetypes 
integration so maybe that's not so interesting.

collective.lead, as I said, is just about Zope transaction integration 
and about being able to say:

  db = getUtility(IDatabase, name=u"mydb")

and then be able to execute SQLAlchemy ORM and SQL commands on that 
object. It should work in plain Zope 3 (it depends on zope.interface and 
ZODB3, from what I recall).

I'm CC'ing Laurence who may have something to add.
