There's no *good* reason. The only reasons are bad. The primary driver is that we're trying to work with the Pylons community to share implementation bits. I suggested that they might use something like zope.configuration to do system configuration. But it turns out that some in that community are completely befuddled by zope.component and those in that community who are not befuddled by it are actively hostile to it. They may still be befuddled by and hostile to something that is simpler, but at least we'll have something to argue about on technical grounds rather than emotion. - C _______________________________________________ Repoze-dev mailing list Repozeemail@example.com http://lists.repoze.org/listinfo/repoze-dev
