I think this is the biggest problem of Zope. Contrary to Python, Zope
makes it /hard/ to do things the simple, clean, correct way. The easiest
way to add behavior to Zoplications is to add more DTML tags to your
web pages; the second-easiest way is Python methods but it's not clear
to a lot of people what the calling semantics are; still a bit harder
is to write special ZClasses with Python methods that encapsulate your
behavior (you can only add ZClasses at one point in the tree, and that's
always /not/ the point you are doing all the other work), and the hardest way
is to separate stuff out in products (which means, as far as I understood
it, hitting lots of "Restart" buttons and certainly means that you loose
the multi-versioning capability of ZODB. 

There are lots of similarities between Zope and Smalltalk. Just gimme 
a decent class browser! ;-)
