My suspicion is that the Zope 2 code base will eventually become the Zope 3 
code base as all Zope X3 pieces get merged into it via Five. Once we 
completely fade out the Zope 2 code, we can call it Zope 4.

Here is why I am saying this:

- I do not believe that there will be ever a Zope 2 compatibility layer in 
Zope X3. The other way around seems more pragmatic and is currently done in 

- I do not want Zope X3 cluttered with old Zope 2 code plus glue. :-)
