Zope Toolkit is a good name. But so is Zope Framework. And honestly,
it's more a framework than a toolkit. A toolkit is a collection of
reasonably independent tools. OK, so Zope Framework is actually loads
of frameworks, one for components, one for security one for web forms,
and this and that. But they are also designed to work together, and
therefore makes a sort of megaframework.

OK, fair enough, Django calls itself a framework too. It is more
specifically "a high level web framework". Zope Framework is NOT a web
framework and certainly not high level. It's an application framework.
Grok and BFG are web frameworks in the sense of Django.

Is it really a big enough problem to distinguish between an
application framework like Zope, and a Web Framework like Django, so
that we need to rename everything again? I don't think so. Zope
Framework is clear name and already in use. Changing that name just
because it's not the same type of Framework as Django seems weird.

So I'm +0 on Zope Toolkit. But +1 on Zope Framework. It just makes
more sense to me.
