No.  It would only mean that there was one Zope application thing  
(pluggabel application platform ...)

No. I was only referring to the Zope 2 wanna-be application  
implemented with Zope 3.

I certainly think the components that such an application is made of,  
including application-server components have a long and happy life  
ahead of them.

I don't think the term "app server" is crisp. To me "app server" !=  
pluggable application.
