Sure, but while I fully acknowledge problems with the Zope 2 approach,
in my view we've gone a bit overboard at times with the Zope 3 spirit.

There is value in thinking about compact expression. The great benefit
with Zope 3 is that we frequently actually *know* the aspects of what
we want to express compactly, as we tend to be expressing these
aspects separately.

I hope we can foster a spirit where after we have factored out the
independent aspects we can look at them again and make their
expression more compact, at least for whatever we determine is a
common case.
