No, and this is probably out of scope. WebDev has not addressed many, many 
other issues. The reason I want to allow Python code generation is that if a 
scripter grows up to become a developer, he does not have to rewrite his 
software, but has an initial start. Personally, I do not even think that 
round-tripping would be possible, because the WebDev development is far more 
limiting than filesystem-based development.

There are tools that do round-tripping, like ArchGenXML, which will have Zope 
3 support in the next release.
