Removing the -D (debug) switch from the z2 line in start.py will cause Zope
to release control of the terminal from which it was started.

In the "ZODB" (Zope Object Database).  See
http://www.zope.org/Members/mcdonc/HowTos/gainenlightenment for
some nuggets.  This is a tough one to wrap your head around when you first
get started.
