but don't we already have `IGroupTool` from
`Products.PlonePAS.interfaces.group`? hmm, i guess i probably just
don't get what you mean atm... :)

yes, of course, but what i meant was to have a central place to
import from for all the portal tools used or rather provided by
plone. that is everything that shows up in a fresh plone instance,
not anything 3rd party.

i agree, and i guess i shouldn't have sorta suggested
`CMFPlone.interfaces` first and then said "maybe
`CMFPlone.interfaces.tools` would be better" in my mail, but straight
away went for the latter. that was probably too far towards the end
of another mail gotten too long... ;)

well, maybe to clear this up again: that's what i was looking for... :)

right. i suppose i accidentally picked the worst one with respect to
the not too long ago move to plonepas, but like i said, not knowing
too many details about that it really took a while to be halfway
confident to use the interface i actually wanted with `getUtility`.
and i just suspected others would run into the same "problem"...
