I think this is a really fantastic idea.  To speak broadly, it's great
that you're so mindful of the real importance of identity -- in both a
"branding" sense and simply in the sense of being a self-contained
entity -- for the development of software communities and software
itself.  Buildout is a standalone product independent of the Zope
framework or libraries, but that's only meaningful if it actively
establishes an independent identity in people's minds.

I think you're doing a really great thing for the community by paying
attention to these issues.  So, in short, thanks.  :)

Cheers,
Ethan
