Hi All,

I have some real issues with this work being done in the fashion it has:

- It's being done into the beta phase of Zope 2.12

- There's been zero discussion with the community before this was done.

Have I missed something here?

In particular:
> Modified: Zope/trunk/src/ZPublisher/Publish.py
> +from zope.event import notify
>  
> +from pubevents import PubStart, PubSuccess, PubFailure, \
> +     PubBeforeCommit, PubAfterTraversal
> +

Has anyone looked at the performance implications of all these events 
(which most of us will never use) being fired off?

>      except:
> +        # save in order to give 'PubFailure' the original exception info
> +        exc_info = sys.exc_info()

As this is never deleted, does it not leak stack frames?

The change in the config that makes this necessary is pretty 
unacceptable. I have lots of code that looks in config.environment, now 
I have to find all that code and change it in a similar fashion. WTF?

...this is the offending change.

Andreas, please revert this change until people have had a chance to 
look at it properly.
