What I'm confused about is that we've already solidly gone through door 
#2 a while ago. Since we went through door #1 once people started 
developing pure Zope 3 applications, I don't see the either-or of these 

Sure, there is pressure on Zope 3 for features that aren't there yet. 
Overall I think that's good. The pressure shouldn't be artificial and 
just a point by point comparison with Zope 2, but if actual projects 
need a feature in Zope 3 they can start building it and that's only good.

What is new here? What is the concrete proposal besides juggling around 
names confusing everybody?
