Why do we not want to provide this kind of aliasing for the whole
interfaces package in order to avoid packaging issues?  I still think
that importing twisted.zope.interface is less problematic than importing
zope directly.  (It may be desireable for us to rev components less
frequently than zope, for example.)

What exactly about the _xmlplus mess made it a nightmare and why?  I
have vague memories of horribleness but I gave up too early to be
seriously scarred.
