So you think it is better to loose the existing Zope 3 developers in 
anticipation of more community involvement? This would be Zope 3's death blow 
as we know it, because it would stall Zope 3 for several months. Honestly, I 
rather have less exposure and keep the code base clean.

You are kidding, right? You know April 1st is not for another 4 months. In all 
honesty, I think you are downplaying the new overhead of Zope 3 developers 
too much.
