Hm, nice overview. What would be missing is a general Web/HTTP section.
That's another part we always take for granted, but it is not. At least,
that's my experience from two recent introductions of Zope. So, to continue
in your vein: before we land in Zope land we should go through

1. The World of the Web and why it needs a Server of Applications
2. Where we draw up Requests and Encode them
3. Learn about the Protocols that are Spoken
4. Understand the mysteries of Common Gateways
5. Pass the Secret Ways of Authorisation and Authentication
