And it keeps all the pieces easy to locate! +1


There are a few ways to approach serialization of a view that contains
both a template and Python code:

- Serialize it as a directory containing two files.

IMHO, this is the obvious and probably best choice. It's well in line with a sentiment
in the the Linux file system world that the way to handle multi-piece files is to treat them
as directories rather than introduce another layer of special mechanisms. The file sytem
itself can them optimize their storage as part of a general small file optimization strategy.
I don't think the objection to having to pack a ZPT and it's script(s) in a separate ZODB
folder applies anywhere near as well to file system storage.
