Another question: How does the WSGI integration relate to HTTP-based

All HTTP-based servers are covered, since our application code makes the
decision which sub-protocol has been used.
The answer for non-HTTP servers is not that simple. One of the reasons we
chose twisted was for the FTP support, which was rewritten so that we could
use Twisted in Zope 3.
I think that any decision to support FTP should be separated from the
decision about what HTTP server to use.
I made a mistake several years ago when I decided to (have Amos)
implement FTP over ZPublisher. The Zope publisher is a CGI-inspired
HTTP-based and thus stateless API. It is a poor fit for FTP and I
I don't know what the current Zope 3 FTP integration is like. If I were
do do this today, I would design a Python-based FTP server with hooks
that one could deploy on top of a ZODB app. Then if I wanted an FTP server
as well as an HTTP server, I would simply use separate processes.
