The python maintainer insisted that this not happen, and FESCo (as a
body) agreed.

There is plenty of discussion at

Search for "<tibbs> Sorry, we also need to consider the zope/plone

Note that the Zope maintainer considered doing so and decided against
it.

I would consider it and have actually offered, but this was also discussed and requested to not happen.

And to respond to your later message:

Note that the zope maintainer considered doing just that but decided
against it.

I would also look at doing this, but was this was discussed and requested to not happen.
