Right. I have a working prototype that adds an 'interfaces' tab to most
Zope objects in the ZMI. But finishing this has low priority for me and
there are still some unresolved issues:
1.) It depends on zope.app.introspector, but the introspector is
deprecated in Zope 3.1.
marker interfaces are YAGNI. Looks like this should be discussed with
Zope 3 people.
2.) All empty interfaces are addable as marker interfaces, but there are
many empty interfaces that aren't useful as marker interfaces.
I guess we need a more explicit way to specify marker interfaces.
AFAIR (didn't look at Flon for a while) Flon has the same issues.
