On the technical side, I don't know. But from my point of view, the
most important thing is the "social" side. I'm a bit tired to be
"compartmentalized" : you must use "generics" tools (Nose, WebOb,
Paster...) or Zope tools (Zope3, KGS, zope.testbrowser, zope.testing,
zc.buildout, z3c.testsetup...). Pyramid is the first step in the right
direction : the fusion of 3 communities (bfg, pylons, tg) with some
Zope ideas. Thanks so much Chris and Ben, for the first time in my
Python life, I see a fusion and not a fork. PSF said at last Pycon
"PSF is the Python foundation, not the CPython foundation" and offers
10k$ to PyPy.

Sincerely, you rock my word: Buildout, Zope2, Zope3, Doctest, you
created so many fantastic tools (I use Zope tools since 99), but now
it's time to see outside the Zope world and share ideas and tools.

Sorry for the noise, it's just a cry of my heart.
