For what, though? You want to build utilities etc, perhaps, but I would've  
thought that the usefulness of that idiom only applies when it's used  
across the board, including on your content objects. I suppose the  
Zope/Python object representation may have certain interfaces that you can  
use; perhaps that's enough. But how do you apply a marker interfaces, say,  
to something on the filesystem?

To be honest, I'm not sure I understand this well enough to give a +1 or a  
-1 or that it's really my place to do so. I just wonder that if the idea  
is that people should use this as a first step because the ZODB is too  
complex, well, then Zope itself is much more complex and they'd use Apache  

Now, as for making it possible to provide views or mount points (whether  
top level or not) to filesystem data and have a sensible way of mapping  
that data into the Zope world with proxy pyhon objects and interfaces, I  
can see the point very much.
