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
