what if we have valued added content for the zope community that depends on 
dtml functionality. for example i have a mozilla sidebar that depends on 
being able to query the site index for recent news items? or if i was going 
to make a xml file with product info? will these types of things be supported 
by dc?

on a side note, i vaguely remember discussion of this a few months ago, but i 
can't recall if this is being done because of actual problems with the 
existing setup or soley to show off the cmf? in other words why?

does this mean in a nutshell that all content is being dumbed down into stx 
type of documents and default cmf content objects with the exception of

is there going to be some automated conversion of existing content or unless 
people act now their documents will disappear?

what about Wikis?
