Yes. Because I worked very hard the last 3.5 years to have a very deep and 
fairly complete understanding of Zope 3. This is the reason I can fix 
doctests and bugs in almost every part of Zope 3. I do not want to spend time 
acquiring this skill in Five or Zope 2 (again). I have no motivation to do 

I have been a Zope 3 developer for over 3 years and I have worked very hard 
trying to make (some) money with Zope 3 when it was not easy to do so. Now 
that I have finally plenty of Zope 3 work, you come around and force me to 
learn Five and Zope 2 again, if I want to continue developing for Zope 3. And 
that's plain bullshit. The strong resistance of some of the other pure Zope 3 
developers should give you a hint.
