And the intended audience of ZCML is a very different audience -
developers versus sysadmins.
This separation is artificial. I've never seen a single Zope
installation where a system administrator had to care about Zope
configuration issue. There was always a Zope developer in charge to deal
with configuration issues.
Sure, but it's not my point. I don't think sysadmins, familiar with
Apache configuration syntax, are the audience for ZCML. Developers are.
Therefore, an important benefit of ZConfig syntax, familiarity from
Apache, goes away in case of ZCML. While many developers may be familiar
with Apache config syntax, not all are, and a random developer is more
likely to be familiar with XML anyway.
Anyway, this whole discussion may be moot; Jim's proposal is rather hard
to interpret for people in this thread, so now I don't know anymore what
he's proposing. :)
