The current release of Zope works well on python 2.0. If you are a
cautious type, you might not want to use it on a production server
yet. (I would certainly recommend you dont if you allow untrusted
users to write dtml)

_.string is unlikely to go away.

String methods are currently inaccessible TTW. The security
implications of opening this up have not yet been assessed.

My patches to give Zope full (full enough for me) unicode support are
at http://www.zope.org/Members/htrd/wstring.

It seems likely that they will not be available in dtml (for the same
reasons as regular assignment). The case for PythonMethods has not yet
been investigated

Not closely enough ;-)
