Many people have said they're using the Zope 3 app server, where app  
server is the collection of components used to run applications using  
Zope 3 components.

What no one is interested in is the *application* that was distributed  
in the Zope 3 distribution.

For many of us, the components that make up Zope 3 have become boring  
and don't require a lot of maintenance.

I think we have to be a lot more careful about our terminology.

What definition of "app server" are we using?

What the heck is the "Zope Toolkit"?  Is there a page somewhere that  
defines what it is?  I thought Zope 3 was being renamed "Zope  
Toolkit", but given recent discussions, I'm not sure.
