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. > Nobody is every going to care about > Zope3-the-appserver, as opposed to "the-libraries-harvested-from- > Zope3" > (at least, the folks who might care are a tiny minority for branding > purposes).
