Worse yet, they _seem_ like a neat/useful solution. But they're not - it's a path that leads to madness and despair. I'd prefer the approach of making you change some code in lib/python/ to enable them, with them disabled by default. -- Anthony Baxter <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> It's never too late to have a happy childhood. _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
