Heh, my Z3 experience is limited to theory + some Five work so far.  
Seriously, though - do people need these? If so, what for?

I must say I'm a bit disappointed to learn this. I thought this was  
exactly the kind of think Zope 3 *didn't* encourage because it learnt  
lessons from Zope 2. I may be naive about when these are needed, of course.

But I'd like to see them switched off by default if no-one can make a  
convincing case for why they should be there (except, well, you know, they  
were there in Zope 2, and we thought someone may have liked them). I'm  
sure I'm missing something obvious, though.
