Okay. Let me rephrase. Most people don't find it painful, and a huge number
of developers are being very productive with Archetypes. I know you hate it
Chris, but you are in the minority.

In any case, you may be interested to see some experiments we've been doing
with using formlib and Zope3-like content types, not using Archetypes. See
It won't be a full alternative to Archetypes for a while, because AT
provides functionality that doesn't (yet) have any equivalent outside AT,
but for simple things it may be worth exploring.
