Take a look at this graph:


zope.app.publisher is pointing at both zope.container and zope.site.

I believe it's possible to break the dependency on zope.container. But 
if we did so and still had a (small) dependency on zope.site, we won't 
gain anything. If we do manage to break both dependencies, we can lose 
zope.site, zope.container, zope.cachedescriptors, zope.dottedname, 
zope.broken and zope.filerepresentation and zope.lifecycleevent from its 
dependency graph, if I read it well. That's 7 packages. :)
