Please pardon my slowness to respond.  Zope is (still) not (yet) my full-time
occupation.

Agreed.   I'm mainly playing devil's advocate because we're moving into the
realm where changes have consequences (unlike the legacy-free nature of Z3.)

I think you are right.

I see this in your email to Tres:

- - We would not enable this by default in 2.9,

Assuming that the note on enabling this in 2.9 is fairly easy to spot (README or
ChangeLog or whatever is appropriate) that should be enough.

I'm not trying to rain on anyone's parade or slow the adoption of Zope 3.  I,
along with everyone here want to see this transition go smoothly.  When the
customer only notices the change due to new functionality, ease of use, or
improved performance, then we will know that we have succeeded.
