I don't see that Plone needs an appserver anymore. A "framework" plus the application code on top is more than enough. >> Plone is going to continue to use selected Zope libraries as everyone >> else, but use Repoze or just general Python packages from all over. >> Personally I want to move Plone from zope.i18n to Babel for example.

I don't want to switch to another application server and certainly not "Zope 3". The notion of a Plone site being a local instance inside the application server is already blurry. From what I see today, we will slowly move away from it. WSGI configuration is going to be application global, more configuration and behavior will be based on things simply being available on sys.path. What Plone will get is a notion of a "website" or "subsite" inside the application with a much smaller configuration aspect to it. Maybe I'm wrong on this, but I assume the "Plone Site" object is going to be optional in Plone 5 (two or three years from now).
