I think a general proposal for "Pluggable front-ends" would be better 
received. I know there has been talk about dropping ZServer in favor of 
Apache 2.0. What would be nice would be to have options. 

ZServer's simplicity in terms of admin and setup is a big advantage, 
especially for getting Zope adopted and for testing. If Twisted is equally 
easy, it might sub in as a more powerful alternative (There is no doubt going 
to be disadvantages for some purposes I think), and Apache 2.0 for the 
ultimate in flexibility and scalability at the expense of initial setup, 
upkeep and learning curve.

Just my $.02
