2. The X in Zope 3X means that there is not yet support for Zope 2 transition. It's about setting expectations.
But we're setting the expectation that one day there will be a version of Zope 3 that supports Zope 2.
No. We are setting the expectation that we will provide a supported transition process. That *could* be backwward compatibility, but it might be much less.

doesn't seem to think so, for one.
I think it is reasonable.
I'm OK with dropping the X is someone else wants to manage this communication another way, but I'd rather not drop it.
You could just say "Zope 3 is not compatible with Zope 2".
This is not acceptable in the long term.
It just depends on how you count feature releases; for marketing reasons you might want to call a significant feature advance Zope 4. If Zope 4 means a total rewrite from scratch, then please noooooh.
Fair enough. I certainly don't want to see another architectural change as big as Zope 3.
