Why do you think it's better to have to create a monolithic schema for all
applications bits that want to use the configuration file, rather than letting
individual applications define how to read their own data independently?
You already can do this now with ZConfig -- no need for
a monolithic schema:
I recently implemented a ZServer based NNTP server.
There was no monolithic schema required. The new "sectiontype"
was described in "NNTPServer/component.xml", the configuration
file simply imported the package and decribed the NNTP-Server.
Formerly, this was possible only for a few abstract types
with corresponding multisections (such as servers, storages, ...).
In modern Zope schemas, there is a general purpose abstract type
precisely for this kind of extensions.
Where is this documented?
Let's pursue this a bit.
Would it be possible to write a configuration file that loaded
it's own schemas? For example, suppose I wanted to configure
zope and twisted, could I do something like:
Then free the main program from having
to specify a schema?
If so, how do I make this so? Being able to do this *soon* would help
me make progress on simpler Zope packaging and simpler server support.
