Heh, in retrospect, my "I guess we should go with plan 2" post comes  
off a bit like Marc Antony's speech in Julius Caesar:

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him;
The evil that men do lives after them,
The good is oft interréd with their bones,
So let it be with Caesar.

...Then Antony goes on to praise Caesar. :-)

I'm also +1 on Martijn's approach: let's keep Zope 3 around, and stay  
the course.

...if the single app server is based on acquisition,  
__bobo_traverse__ and friends, objectValues and friends, ZCatalog,  
and so on, I'd rather have two, thanks: at least I can have one I like.
