"ugly" python expressions in ZPT is to me a clear signal that
you need to refactor and that's a GOOD THING. And refactoring
is easy when you can just start by copy / pasting the
python expressions into a Script. If they were some
new-fangled "if: then: else:" syntax in TAL, you'd have to
rewrite from scratch... and we're right back in the
mess we got into with DTML: the poor developer is forced
to learn many ways of doing the same thing.
