Exactly. And if we look at other projects, we always recognize some well known
key persons, who have leader roles. For instance, SQLAlchemy has Michael
Bayer, Linux has Linus, Python has Guido and so on. That does not mean that
these key person(s) dictate the way the development goes, but
consideres/embraces ideas and leads in one direction, where everyone follows.
My impression (from an external perspective) is that Zope Corporation did just
that for Zope 2/3, but nowadays tries to give this role to the community.
That's bad as this leaves an empty void, which is currently somehow filled
out by some key persons, which are extremely capable, but don't have a leader
