Just a random, related thought that came up: Wouldn't it be nice
if people could devellop locally on their own zope (under windows
or unix) and hit the 'Sync' button on their "SyncedFolder" to
transparently upload their work to the zope server where it becomes
live immediately? (ok, this wouldn't work for external databases)

Just a thought. I know it doesn't cover all situations and there are
other ways to do this (next to just developping remotely using versions).
