I have handed systems with a thin ZClass layer on top to semi- developers and they were *easily* able to take it from there. These are people who would never have grokked (and bothered with) disk- based Python development and all the mumbo-jumbo it entails.

No other system has anything even remotely like this. People are *blown away* by the power of building objects TTW (define some properties, write a few scripts and templates, done!). Take that RoR, Django, Vignette, Broadvision, ... ;-)

Of course ZClasses have their limitations, but I fully agree that this is first and foremost a documentation problem.

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