Python Products.

Yepp :)

Upload?  Upload to where?

mk-zprod (as it works today) creates a directory on your filesystem, and
in that directory (which you just copy to your Products directory) it
creates an img/ directory and puts them there.
Or are you asking where the wizard should store them?  (Which I thought it
didn't have to.)

Just the name. :)

In the dtml/ directory of mk-zprod you have Add2.dtml, that's the page the
user is redirected to after adding an object.  Maybe a text area with a
suggestion (like Add2.dtml) in it?

Hubbliski.  We could provide them with standard classes as defaults
(Persistent, Explicit/Implicit, AccessControl) and suggest some
others.  I'm not too sure about the ZClass thing.

Why not just have:

        def __init__(self, attrib1, attrib2='something'):
                """doc string"""
                self.attrib1 = attrib1
                self.attrib2 = attrib2

which could come from such a description:

                name: attrib1 default value: None
                name: attrib2 default value: "something"
What do you think?

My latest projects sub-classes left, right and center.  If we just have
the logic for a recursive loop there the user could add as many as s/he
wanted without it being much more work for us.

Well, I was, but I'm moving to France the 8. of July and I've just come
home (to Norway) from England.  England, Norway, France, Germany, France
all in just three weeks is a bit much :)  (Oh, and I have to get an
apartment in Antibes.)
