People keep telling Zope2 developers that the inclusion of Zope3

any different for Zope3 developers, obviously including Zope2 code
would mean exactly the same thing for them. Come on now.

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.

I believe your assertion that you have to deal with Zope2 and become "a Zope 2 developer again" is just plain wrong. As wrong as Zope2 developers have to be Zope3 developers.
