Unfortunately integrating a product into the Zope core means more than just adjusting the coding style:

- As already mentioned in this thread, monkey patches and code like have to be resolved. AdvancedQuery contains a monkey patch for CMF - that should not be shipped with Zope core.

"fixPluginIndexes" fixed (maybe meanwhile resolved) bugs in

The mentioned CMF monkey patch gives the "CatalogTool" the new method
"evalAdvancedQuery", provided CMFCore is installed.
I do not see why this monkey patch should not be applied.

I am sure that I want to be able to use "AdvancedQuery" even
with a "CatalogTool", if both are installed.

Monkey patches should be avoided when they can. I think that's something we don't need to discuss. Integrating a product into Zope is the perfect opportunity to get rid of monkey patches and consolidate the fixes into the main product lines. Therefore, the CMF should rather grow that method itself than having it patched in by Zope.

Either way, I think this point is mute since all the Plone community really wants is a public subversion repository with access to the code and "control over the code", which I would think is asking for a lot (you've indicated that reformatting the code would mean you wouldn't be available for maintenance anymore).

Whoever is asking for AdvancedQuery and other things to be in or even Zope 2 itself ought to weigh the amount of maintenance work against the little potential (not actual!) benefits. I think we can leave everything as it is and if Plone needs it in an svn repo, heck, why not do vendor imports? (not in, of course, since the contributor agreement forbids that)
