Well Gijs, you've got some points right in what you're saying BUT...
If you know some HTML and Stylesheets why don't you revamp the interface yourself. I 
have.
Look for dtml files in your Zope root. When you open them you'll see that it's good 
old HTML.

I, for example, have a small monitor and not much space for long lists of objects, so 
I changed that in one single line of HTML. Neither did I like the boring white 
background. 
Change: <body> to <body bgcolor="color">

I used to think that Linux was ugly and Windows was nicer. Then I realized that if I 
spend a couple of mins on customizing Enlightment or KDE, I can have it exaclty the 
way I want it. Even better than Windows!

Isn't Open Source software cute?
