Hey Ethan,

Right, I forgot about ZCMLLoader, thanks for the reminder!

Would OpenPlans be willing to work on moving this functionality into 
z3c.autoinclude? I think the test infrastructure we have for it should 
help solidify your functionality too, right?

I think your comment about making the plugin story generic is 
interesting. It might also apply to what we do in z3c.autoinclude - 
instead of just including ZCML, we could be, say, be grokking those 
packages directly. Of course for the foreseeable future we're not going 
to get rid of this last bit of ZCML in Grok, but it might make sense at 
some point.

I think the genericity is not something we should overly worry about 
right now, but it would be useful to keep it in the back of our minds 
nonetheless - thanks for that important point! I'll note that right now 
the generic plugin behavior can be accomplished by writing a ZCML 
directive that registers the plugins and then placing a ZCML file in the 
package. :)
