Yep.  It's looking good, although Ty and I both had to raise our Zope
internals Zen a few levels of mastery to finish the PlugIns framework
today.  Tomorrow we plan to do cleanup, documentation, testing, and general
review before release.  The release includes the PlugIns framework, which
everything is now based on, and it includes the base class for
SheetProvider plugins.  By implementing SheetProviders, you can give user
objects property sheet data from absolutely anywhere Zope can access.

Unfortunately, in this release you will have to implement the actual
property sheets yourself, because the SheetProvider base class just has a
stub method for returning a property sheet, but it doesn't actually know
how to make one yet.  :(
