I'll note that in the Python community we consider it an advantage of using attributes/properties versus accessor and mutator methods. This distinction between an attribute- versus method-centric object oriented programming language has been discussed in many articles. Note that we provide several other mechanisms to extend functionality; for example, the event system. Overall Zope (like most other Python code) is optimized to work with attributes/properties. We just like them too much! :-) Regards, Stephan -- Stephan Richter CBU Physics & Chemistry (B.S.) / Tufts Physics (Ph.D. student) Web2k - Web Software Design, Development and Training _______________________________________________ Zope3-dev mailing list Zope3email@example.com Unsub: http://mail.zope.org/mailman/options/zope3-dev/archive%40mail-archive.com
