I agree that ZODB is very central, but I think there are a lot of people
who would use Zope if they didn't have to simultaneously commit to ZODB

The big thing for me is the migration story. First, I (as a web
designer, novice or experienced) build a web site for my company or I
conceive of some fun new idea like del.icio.us. I make a little site in
the web root, using Zope technology, with only one dead but familiar
chicken: filename extensions. If the site I build turns out to be
reusable, I graduate into application development, and the transition is
smooth since I'm already using Zope technology. I praise the developers
of Zope for the nice learning curve. :-)

Maybe. I've come to think of baking as a pretty hard problem, though.
It's like caching (which is often a hard problem) without invalidation.
