Great, you've just re-invented LAMP, but without the years of testing to
make it stable :-/
I know I'd like that capability myself.
Then use Apache and CGI, this feels to me like trying to implement an
HTTPS server for Zope, it's not what "we" do best and so shouldn't be
focusing on it...
However, I expect ZODB to continue to be the dominant platform for
writing Zope applications, because ZODB is quite productive for writing
Yes, but most people wouldn't choose ZODB unless they "had to", even
though it ends up being the thing that gives them the big wins...
Zope is a feast with many kinds of food. When people come to the feast,
most are not willing to try everything at once, particularly the entrees
from the land of OODBMS. First let them have some familiar foods. When
they find out how finely prepared the food is, they'll be ready to try
the meaty main course. Although many will still prefer the RDBMS salads.
Scripts and RBDMS are the fast food of the web development world, not
the salad. Looks nice, tastes great, eventually leaves you fat and
unhealthy. ZODB and maybe an ORM is the greens for me, it might not be
to everyone's taste at first, but it's the best option in the long run...
