Their isn't a branch. Plone doesn't follow any moving targets from its
lower stack. It always needs someone to sign-up for the job of
updating and then dealing with all issues that the upgrade causes.
Currently Plone most definitely won't pass all tests when run against
CMF trunk - but it's unknown how much breakage there is.

Mmh, why don't we just use zope.globalrequest in ZCatalog directly?
And create a new ZCatalog 2.14 release series with this. Then we don't
have to wait for Zope 4.0 to include it.
