Hi there,

Just to illustrate how looking at the dependency graph can be helpful:

If we can remove this, it looks like we can remove our dependency on 
zope.dublincore, and it might be zope.size as well.

Note that this might eliminate our dependency on zope.browsermenu 
(unless there's stray ZCML out there that uses this functionality). If 
we can figure out that grokcore.view doesn't need zope.ptresource (I 
don't see why it would), then eliminating zope.app.publisher would also 
remove our dependency on zope.ptresource.
