Sadly this is a constraint of zope ide's being browser based (or based
on current browsers). I would eagerly like to help out with a project
that would like to see this changed.  Building such an interface with
gnome or kde would be possible, indeed there are already efforts
underway to do both. But to create a cross-platform solution really
needs... Mozilla. Sadly, the ZopeMoz projects appears to be dead,
hopefully developer interest can be generated in reviving it after
ActiveState releases the python bindings to XPCOM (which should be
soon).
