This, of course, all depends on the answer to the question:
Consistency with what?  Zope 3 history?  The larger Python community?
(Don't think the world agrees on PEP 8...)

Because my desire is to make individual "Zope" packages more widely adopted by the larger Python community and bring more people to Zope 3, I prefer PEP 8. As has been said of Python, more Python code will be written in the future than has been in the past, I hope the same is true of Zope. Hopefully, there are also more Zope users to come than we have ever had.

Consistency is good, but we have to be consistent with the largest body of code/group of people as possible.
