Hmm, for the simple things, it's still good, right. But much of the
"trickier things", not mentioned in the book, aren't that good!

Perhabs it's silly me, forgetting to much of what I have learned
before? But each version of Zope I try give me the feeling of starting
from a new!

I think of upgrading as a "must" on public reachable systems, because
of security fixes. Maybe there are no at the moment, but when they
come, upgrades must go fast and smooth. Without recoding.

Oh, sorry! Don't want do call out loud!

Then, I must have done something wrong.

But if I look at the changelogs, all the ZCML-Changes, and API
changes, it can't be that few. If I want to get on a state without any
deprecation warnings, I have more to do then I like.

It's very good to see, Zope3 ist developing, but now it's time, to get
it stable too!

Perhabs I'm not the right audience for Zope3? I'm working for a small
company, doing the web stuff is just an unimportant part of my work.
So each change I have to do is one to much. I would even love to use
Zope for my privat homepage. But it's hobby, there's not much time
to do even small changes. For larger environments (like Lexware)
this may be no problem, there is time and money for incooperating
changes in homemade packages.
