Zope3? Not at all.
Will modularizing Zope 3 make it easier for newbies? Not really, but
with zopeproject or similar it shouldn't be more complicated either.
In fact, the installation process might end up being simpler:
tar xvfz thetgz
make instance directory
Or something similar to that. Doesn't really look more complicated
to me. :-)
Sure, it uses paste and stuff, but you don't have to know about
that to use it.
I think we need to leave soem space for people who want to
site, without wanting to do "full-on" Zope3 package-based development.
If zopeproject makes it obvious where to put "filesystem pages",
will use them, probably.
I would actually like to leave the "customizeable/pluggable app"
story to another project, mostly because it's a concern that's
orthogonal to zopeproject.
zopeproject is actually general enough (or at least it tries to be)
so that it can be used to bootstrap applications that build on top of
Zope. Grok is a good example, grokproject uses zopeproject under the
hood. (Grok, in a way, makes things a lot easier for the "middleclass
programmer" anyway, perhaps enough for people to feel comfortable
with it as a means for customizing existing apps, e.g. Plone)
