We should not be too pendantic when it comes to coding styles. I assume

As the community grows, this is an increasingly poor assumption.
Different developers come to Zope with different background experience
and from environments that have their own coding styles.

My statement was focused on discussions like camel case vs. underscores.
Such discussions are basically academic. In real life when you develop
software for different companies or projects it is hard to switch your
personal coding styles from project to project. In my experience you adopt
the Zope 3 style guide also to other projects outside the Zope world.
But let's be pragmatic at some point...

Now with Philipp's guide we have a document telling people
how to do it the right way.

I don't think that's what this is.  This is a document describing how
things /are/ done in the Zope 3 repository.  That's helpful both as it
stands and as a foundation for a document on how things should be
going forward.

What's the difference? :-)
