There's no need to feel that way at all. Please continue to point out

I think that means we weigh bringing back the introspector a bit more 
heavily. I still think we shouldn't let it slow us down if it's 
difficult, but I also think that if someone seriously studied 
zope.app.apidoc on which the introspector is built, we could replace it 
without reintroducing the dependencies we're trying to get rid of.

I'm not sure what's going on here. Uli, would you be able to hazard a guess?

Input like yours - people who are using the introspector and find it 
useful - will help us determine how urgent this is. :)
