I am currently implementing Skinnable objects for Zope that'll allow you to
easily define an alternative version of the management interface, and switch
between these interfaces very easily. You could build your own version that
doesn't use JavaScript at all.

IIRC, you can tell Mozilla to switch on JavaScript for certain sites though.
Believe me, it'll be worth your while allowing JS in the Zope management
screens by the time I am done.
