Note that I don't claim that my leaving would stall the development. I just 
use my case as an example. I always consider myself of someone, who accepts a 
very high bar for contributing. So, if I think the the bar is too high, my 
thinking goes, then others will also conceive it as too high and that causes 
the stalling.

Everyone is replaceable, I have learned that in the US. But a certain group 
might not as easily be.

I know that The Zope 2 people are around. And I try to answer Five questions 
on the lsits and on IRC as good as I can. I also have nothing against hearing 
the interest of the Zope 2 community. But I am also in a position where I 
must protect the interests of the Zope-3-only community as well. And in *my* 
opinion, in this particular case the Zope 2 community has a lot to gain at 
the expense of the Zope-3-only community. I have outlined my arguments for 
that statement in the many E-mails before.
