I'm not sure about zope.rest; there's already a z3c.rest which likely
does something quite different, and I think a "zope.rest" package should
actually *talk* about REST. What about "zope.httpview" instead?
Another note, I think we should consider splitting off
zope.app.publisher.xmlrpc, which looks quite independent from the rest,
into its own package. So:
zope.app.publisher -> zope.view, zope.xmlrpcview
One question is whether zope.httpview and zope.xmlrpcview are really
similar enough to warrant such a similar naming convention.
zope.app.publisher.xmlrpc does not only define some XMLRPC-related
views, it also defines a ZCML directive, which zope.httpview doesn't do.
I also wonder what should happen with zope.publisher.xmlrpc (which also
looks quite independent from the rest of the zope.publisher code).
