Personally, I find it desireable to use the repoze approach and split
away as much as possible from zope.app.publication into WSGI
middlewares. For instance, repoze.tm is a middle-ware that does
transaction management. If we used that in Zope, zope.app.publication
would become simpler because the transaction handling could be removed.
repoze has effectively shown that this approach enables a non-ZODB
object publisher based on Zope 2. I think the same can work in Zope 3.
