You're right of course, I apologize for going that way. I have little
excuse for that.
Of course you will see previous thread where I tried to talk about Zope
3 and who wanted to maintain it where I tried the erlier bit - I mean,
I've been trying to get that very discussion started. It just seems many

(see my Zope 3 team post for an overview), though there were some people
who are, and I should focus on them.
