I do not know; in reality I have to confess that I have not had the time 
to do things with neither Zope3 nor Django, I have only thought about 
and tried to weigh pros and cons based on my own experiences with Zope 2 
and by reading what others have reported.

What I feel is that there is a gap between the kind of applications that 
I need to build and the requirements that the current set of Zope 2 
tools have about the underlying architecture. I can see how the tools 
themselves have good, solid functionality whose value if apparent even 
for non-content applications but the very tight ties to the ZODB for 
everything makes it harder than necessary to interact outside the 
boudnaries that exist.

I just would like it to be easier to work with Zope and {CMF or it's 
successors} when data is not inside the ZODB.
