I have only GUI code so far, because in this project, I want the UI to
drive the requirements. I'm thinking about the code behind it now.
One strong impression I have is that while zope.configuration is
optimized for executing configurations, it isn't very good for editing
configurations. For example, if the configuration has any mistakes,
zope.configuration refuses to load it. That's not acceptable behavior
for an editing program. Also, I need the editor to work even if the
Python code loaded by the configuration is buggy. That means it's not
safe to load unstable Python modules while editing configuration.
