Ultimately I think I agree with Chris's position. I think the days are
past when we could commit to the success of an overarching Uberthing, be
it a macroframework, platform, or app server. Rather than commit your
reserves in a desperate attempt to win the battle, you withdraw to avoid
losing your whole army.
That notwithstanding, if "Zope" is still the goal, I endorse Martijn's
proposal. Like Gary said, it's admirable that he's taking a shot at
this and we should bite our tongues on quibbling.
In the past we've seen things like "let's unify Zope by merging the
Zope2 and Zope3 mailing lists" get shot down by a couple of loud "no"
votes. Loud no's have grown paralyzing. If Martijn's proposal gets
traction, then perhaps we have a way around them.
