Please, do not shut up.. I'm really interested in your arguments and I
suppose others too. As far as I'm concerned, the main zope products already
depend on zope2.8 | zope2.7 (and I'm thinking about plone and cps), so 
removing the latter one shouldn't be too hard.

I completely agree that we'll have to remove zope2.7, but I would prefer
to leave it around untill the removal is really needed, mainly because there
are a lot of people out using zope2.7 within testing (or even unstable)
because zope products life-cycle is faster than debian stable's one.
Plone will not depend anymore on zope2.7 in a near future (with the next
release, the development team will start using Five, which is shipped with
zope2.8 only), and I think that could be the right moment to drop zope2.7
support. Other opinions?

Thanks for your suggestion,
