We also need an interface.

We can't import everything into a single namespace. There are a lot of
gray areas here (e.g the placeful workflow tool, the lesser-used tools
from CMFEditions), and it doesn't solve the problem for third party
Certainly, I don't think we should further explode the
CMFPlone.interfaces namespace. Perhaps we could have some kind of
"helper imports" module somewhere else, but I can't really think of where.
The good news is that most CMF tools are in Products.CMFCore.interfaces;
the other ones are more specific, like some of the i18n tools. I think
we ought to think closely about the interfaces in PlonePAS, though.
