You are right. I agree. It's my fault. The local component configuration model is far too complicated. Thankfully, thanks to Stephan, it's much less complicated than it used to be.
I won't bore you with the explanation of how we got here. (You probably remember. :) Anyway, I'd like this to be much simpler and could suggest an approach if anyone has time to work on this. Jim Tres Seaver wrote:
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 I have been trying to write a doctest for the "tools" stuff to show Jürgen Kartnaller how, so he could write a test for the bug he found in tool deletion. While writing the test, I found myself mourning for the huge flock of assorted fowl I was slaughtering, trying to get the planets aligned so that the SiteManagerView could actually install a tool implmentation. I have finally given up, and ask abjectly for elightenment from the hierarchs of Z3. Please see the attached doctest and setup code for my efforts so far,  http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.web.zope.zope3/14477  http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.web.zope.zope3/14459  No, I'm not mixing metaphors: the ritual slaughter is precisely intended to cause the planets to realign themselves.
