On the subject of deprecation, for the record, I think removing
ZClasses is a mistake.  They have legitimate uses.

I don't think that ZClasses have real use in the current Zope world except for legacy code. Most people with a solid background write filesystem-based code. That's the official recommended and announced way since years. When look at the Plone world then ppl use Archetypes. Newbies starting with Zope 3 write Python code. Through-the-web scripters can write their applications using ZPT, Python scripts etc. Only ppl with legacy code or ppl unwilling to migrate their apps to a filesystem-based implementation are still using ZClasses. None of us is announcing ZClasses as solution to develop wit Zope.

They have major
flaws too.  It would help if we would more clearly document their
limitations and pitfalls, rather than get rid of them, at least
until we have something better,

When I proposed the deprecation of ZClasses almost all vote were pro-deprecation votes.

Do we need something better? Can't ppl solve their problems with the solutions mentioned above?

Your time and our time is very much limited. We should spend this time
on useful Zope projects and not in supporting ancient concepts that don't help the majority of the Zope developers.
