I wonder where Chris' orginal post is. I don't seem to have it.
Yes, you're right about different tools. But we can't make the
conclusion that ZClasses are the only good tool for getting prototypes
done fast. If there are better tools (and I think there are) and
ZClasses are in fact so hard to maintain that only one or two people can
actually do it, I see little point in defending them.
I think Chris is defending the functionality and trying to motivate someone
to provide maintenance.
When are ZClasses the best solution?
"best" is probably not the best word for Chris to have used. :)

fastest way to build an application. I can put up a simple list of
types in ZClasses and DTML so incredibly quickly. Frankly developing
a file system based python application is just way too much overhead
for bringing up simple web applications quickly.
Chris, have you tried ArchGenXML?
I find it rather impressive in this regard. If I needed something
quick and dirty, I would pick it ober ZClasses.
The problem is the lack of an exit strategy. If you only need a simpel
web app, fine. If you're creating a prototype, ZClasses are hard to get
out of without rewriting a whole lot of code.
Right. But if it is a throw-away prototype, that doen't matter.
