This is something I would like to contribute to as it matches my skillset  
and interests pretty well. From the responses so far it seems that most  
people are so used to the ZMI that no change feels necessary and, let's  
face it, it works well enough. However, for new people coming to Zope the  
1990nish of it is a bit off-putting: we've got all this cool technology  
underneath but you wouldn't believe it when you look at it. And I don't  
think much is required beyond dropping frames, the table-based layout  
using PageTemplates rather than DTML. I have an open ticket on much the  
same for CMFDefault which is where I will start from (from the point of  
view of separating markup from layout). But my work rate isn't brilliant  
so it would be good to have a sparring partner or two.
