 Hi peeps,
 
 I'm trying to figure out whether to continue work on
 an existing ZClass product, or rewrite it from scratch.
 
 I get a claustrophobic feeling working with ZClasses,
 and using Python products is more intuitive to me..
 I've also seen several people (including guys from DC)
 refer to ZClass products as (paraphrasing) not-so-good
 and half-baked..
 
 Anyways, would you care to help me list the pros and cons
 for ZClasses and Python products?

Sounds to me like your needs would best be served with two
related products: a TTW ZClass product and a Python Product.
Each ZClass is derived from an associated Python base class.

You get to keep you flexibility, but also get the advantages
of TTW development when you need it.

Ahah!  That's a very good (and simple) solution.
Thanks for the help!
