Because of this concern, I'm putting this off for a while. I think it
addresses a major hole in Zope, but it also creates two ways to
accomplish similar tasks without a clear division between the two ways.
Note that the Python language, despite its philosophy, has at least
two ways to accomplish things: with functions or with classes. In this
case, two ways are definitely better than one, IMHO.
But before Zope acquires a new way to create web sites, we need to
better understand whether that's a burden Zope ought to bear. It could
turn out that people who don't want ZODB really shouldn't use Zope at
all. I would find that conclusion disheartening, but maybe it's realistic.
