We should really straighten out this situation. I can only use a
branch of collective.lead with a recent sqlalchemy, the z3c.zalchemy
package is evidently broken entirely. I don't know the status of
z3c.sqlalchemy, though I know there's been some activity recently, so
perhaps that Just Works.

Wouldn't it be possible to factor at least some commonalities into a
base package that all share? And factor out things like container
classes from z3c.sqlalchemy? I know there's been plenty of
cross-fertilization between the packages, but can't we aim for
something better here? Do we really need three? Can't we work

There must be a reason for this proliferation of integration layers.
People are dissatisfied for whatever reason with one, and create
another. I think it's high time for consolidation.
