It's just a word.  You don't need to use it.  You could even set up a
filter on your mail client to get rid of it entirely.

Don't hire a Perl developer.  Don't use Perl in Zope.

Zope has DTML and Python, both of which will stay.  You will have the
option of using Perl and XSLT methods pretty soon.  If you don't need
them or don't want them, don't use them.  There are lots of people for
whom this will be a natural entry point in to Zope.  You happen not to
be one of them.

Sheesh, it's like we'd recommended Microsoft in here or something.  :-)
