Personally, I have never advocated inserting Zope 3 into Zope 2. Some people 
really wanted Zope 3 in Zope 2, so that they could use the new technology. So 
they added it. That's fine by me. But if they then turn around and say, "Look 
we have Zope 3 in Zope 2, so you should also have Zope 2 in Zope 3.", then I 
am complaining loudly, because I do not want to have anything to do with Zope 
2. And it just means that I am becoming a Zope 2 developer again. Forget 
that! I'd rather fork Zope 3, then work on a version that has Zope 2 in it. 
It is just too much overhead for me to know all the involved technologies 
(Zope 2 and Five). I have barely time to keep up with Zope 3 and stay on top 
of it.
