Motivations beyond "oh my god"?

One reason Locus might be a bad word is because it's easily confused 
with "Location", a concept we already have.

I'm proposing we separate the folder implementation from the basic site 
functionality. It will then become easier for people to ignore the 
folder implementation and not use it, while we retain backwards 
compatibility for those who do need it.

What is the "same old bad concept"? Details?

Since I actually assembled these things into zope.site, I have some 
awareness of what is in there.

Could you actually point to specific points in the zope.site code? It's 
not a lot of code, after all. I'm proposing we move some of this code 
into zope.component, and the rest into zope.container (or we could leave 
it in zope.site for now). Where is the overhead we can safely remove?
