But I think this is exactely the problem. Convenience is often geared towards 
non-technical people, like designers and integrators. For them to touch or 
write Python code is horrifying. One of the goals of ZCML was to address this 
audience and day: Look add, edit or change this and that directive and you 
are good to go. It was also one of the reasons XML was chosen.
