I agree. I would be willing to do some of that investigation, though I
bet Jim will have his share of thoughts as well...

Yes, that's true. But then again, it's better now than in 6 months when
perhaps half of the vital Zope 2 projects are actively using Zope 3
software (CPS and Silva already are, Plone will be by then).

I also think that the release system we have chosen shouldn't stand in
the way of agile refactorings. If the last release contained only 10 new
features, I have no problem when the next one contains 100 or 1000,
given it's all properly documented and BBB is provided. We wanted
time-based releases, that's what we have, not feature-driven ones.
