My first response was "cool".

My second response was: that's apache;  zope isn't supposed to compete
with or replace apache.

After reading the other responses, I can definitely see real value in
zope supporting applications that don't need an object store.  I did
create an app that (apart from being TTW because I didn't know better
at the time) is entirely RDB-based, another app that uses the zodb for
configuration only and is otherwise entirely backed by LDAP, and I
have created or thought of some applications that don't need any
persistence at all (beyond configuration data, which could be zconfig
or zcml).  This definitely has a lot of value.

So I'm in generally in favor and would like to see an experiment on a
branch like Stephan suggested.  My only concern is that it could grow too big
and try to become an apache replacement.
