You know DCWorkflow?

"CVSFolder" is quite near: I see currently two remaining issues:

   *  Artificial ever changing "id" values in XML exports which makes automatic
      merging difficult

   *  discontinuity for subfolders with their own "CVS" and
      restriction to "Folder" rather than arbitrary "ObjectManagers".

I may soon address both issues, unless Steve is faster....

Apparently, I do not...
I can live with the existing extension products (true, not with
the one in the Zope core).

I like ZClasses. Simple Web applications can very easily be build...

I do not think that CMF is the solution to all problems but in general
it seems very useful.

I will soon build my first large application with CMF. We will see
whether I will agree with you after that....
