I think you are being generous: I have very little doubt that the objections come first from the presence of 'zope' in the package name, and second from the very idea of using a tool which codifies and categorizes abstractions, never mind the benefits. > Perhaps if campaigned a bit on the grounds of the relative ease-of-use > of the ZCA, we wouldn't have to dumb it down to the level of > ``repoze.plugin`` (no offense) in order to get adoption outside of > Zope. These are folks who, on the whole, prefer *code generation*, and place and extremely low value on abstraction and "pluggable reuse". I don't think repackaging is going to help the gag reflex.
