Oh, if I'm allowed to speak *wink*, it would be great if in this refactoring 'zrpc' could be made to work with less dependencies. I'm using 'zrpc' on a project and it was a pain to implement a minimally working application because it depended on a few convoluted steps to setup, some of which could be trivially removed. One way or another, I think Jim's refactoring would simplify this, even if it's not a explicitly stated goal. -- Sidnei da Silva Enfold Systems http://enfoldsystems.com Fax +1 832 201 8856 Office +1 713 942 2377 Ext 214 _______________________________________________ For more information about ZODB, see the ZODB Wiki: http://www.zope.org/Wikis/ZODB/ ZODB-Dev mailing list - ZODB-Dev@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zodb-dev
