I think the Python API is simpler, and the DTML and ZPT interfaces build
on it, so it should be done first.

But then we could work on the DTML and ZPT interfaces at the same time.

With the last news about Zope 3 it seems that all core proposals should be
revised under its light. So I'll add the task "learn Zope 3" in my 
queue. I only
wanted to highlight that this is something important.

But this is also something we can work on from the ZBabel/Localizer/etc..
perspective. I mean, now it's a bit difficult to mix different solutions 
in the
same web site because, if each solution has a different way to do the 
negotiation, it could produce a nasty result, for example, ZBabel returns
something in german and Localizer returns something else in spanish.

At least we could agree on the same algorithm to build the list of user
prefered languages.

Ummhh... We can do some work here. But I prefer to do things in small
steps, lets focus on the message catalogs interface first.

Ok, I've added a wiki page for this task, though it's still empty, for 
those who
don't know the url is:
