-1. Such changes are not much acceptable *now*. 2.b2 will be released this week and 2.8 final in about two weeks. Such changes should have been proposed during alpha phase...but I am against such change in this late release phase.
For Zope 2.8 it is a low risk change and I can work on it within the next days. The problem was introduced by adding Five and the beta phase is for finding issues with new code and fixing them.
That's a good point. Let's amend the plan and say we start executing this *after* Zope 2.8, possibly for Zope 2.9. I hope we can make that release cycle relatively short anyway, and driven by Five changes; this would be a good example of such. Jim may have bigger plans for deeper Zope 3 integration (such as merging the security system), but if that is going to take time then we could defer that until Zope 2.10.
This way, all the work that remains for me is to merge in Five 1.0 into Zope 2.8.
My point is:
Doing that in a backward compatible way is impossible. So we have to do it now or never.
