There will be a convenient api call for this... something like in
five.localsitemanager.make_objectmanager_site.  If all that needs to
happen is to make a cmf site an ISite that five.localsitemanager
likes.  Of course @@components.html's makeSite will do the equivalent.

For me a "beta" doesn't have to be more or less stable than an
"alpha".  The important bit for me is that a "beta" should be feature
complete whereas an "alpha" does not.  So if the branch is feature
complete (within reason, I understand if very small features are
required to fix an as-yet-unidentified bug), I say it's good enough
for "beta".

On a different note ... which branch/trunk should I integrate the
five.localsitemanager changes?  Keeping in mind that on my part it's
*mostly* just an svn:externals change.
