A lot of these are difficult to extract from customer libraries or
dependencies on toolkits (also built up internally) that we may not
really have license to re-distribute. I know it's probably possible to
extricate all of these, but it requires time which is a precious
precious precious resource around here lately.

I really admire people who share their work because there is a lot of
work involved, at least in the initial sharing.

Heh. This past weekend was the first time I actually even got to look
in the direction of the zope3-dev and zope3-users lists in two or
three months! And those are the only Zope lists I'm subscribed to.
Somwhere between working, walking the dog, and sleeping, my life has
disappeared. :\
