Sorry, if you are giving up this quick I won't stop you, nor miss you.

Zope is a growing platform, and people (not just DC) will add support for more
and more technologies. There is support now for SQL (in many diffrent
dialects), Python, DTML, XML, XML-RPC, LDAP IMAP, SMTP and goodness knows what.
Do you know them all? Darn, I don't even know if above list is complete!

Soon XSLT, SOAP and Perl will join the list. Many more will follow. If an
employer is going to demand from you that you know all of the above or you're
out of a job, well, there are plenty of good jobs out there. And good Zope
skills will come in handy to find a nice job. Knowing a little Perl won't hurt
either, BTW. It's all a question of perspective and profesionalism.

Now, please, can we stop this whole silly argument? Can't we talk about old
terminal types or something, instead?
