[Zope-dev] "ZTK" futures: one big package?

After reading this, I thought of one benefit that having a "larger" 
package would have: it's somewhat easier to refactor for dependencies, 
because all the code will be in a single checkout and all the tests can 
be run together, and the fixed release can go out as a single release.

Having done some dependency refactoring I can see the benefit of that, 
but I also think it is not a great benefit given the capabilities of 
buildout-driven development and some of the tools we have (such as 
compattest). We'd certainly give up a lot just to gain that benefit.
