Well, this is why doing it with permissions is great because you can set
it to your preference in the root folder and aquire it from there

Yes, but you may want to restrict WHO can execute something. Perhaps you
have a method that only managers should be able to execute, and no-one
should be able to 'view'.

I still don't really see any point in the 'access' permission and, in
fact I've just been bitten badly by it (see my RecentChanges post to the
Zope list...)

Not so, try out ZWiki's ;-)

I notice there is an FTP permission already. Maybe there should be:
- an execute permission
- a 'view' permission for each 'server': HTTP, FTP, XML-RPC...
