Looks useful, thanks!

Tested and found working in Ploen 4.0 (Zope 2.12) and Plone 4.1 (Zope 
2.13).  I saw a remark on Plone 4.0 that the zcml namespace could for 
some reason not be shown.  On 4.1 this *is* shown (maybe something was 
fixed in its registration), although the zcml:condition directive is not 
shown.  I guess that is something that cannot be fixed in 
aws.zope2zcmldoc though.

Oh, can I suggest adding a z3c.autoinclude entry point for plone so the 
zcml gets picked up automatically on Plone 3.3 and higher?  IIUC your 
package works with plain Zope2 without Plone as well, but having an 
entry point for plone does not hurt that use case.
