Going on Five years now, I have build building Z2 apps using the
"methods" (component architecture, ZCML-driven registration, views
instead of skins).  This period started with the release of Zope 2.8,
which included the Five product, making those techniques available to Z2

The ZMI ia an application which has certain expectataions of content:
chiefly, that it expose a 'manage_options' attribute to tell the ZMI
what to do about tabs.  If you don't need to tweak your app inside the
ZMI, you don't need any of that.

The ZTK is a set of libraries, *not* another appserver / framework
designed to replace Zope2.  You can use as many of those libraries as
you like inside a Z2 app (modulo some possible dependency issues between
versinos of the libraries required by the current Z2 vs. those required
by a given version of the ZTK).
