 I would like to get a clarifaction on this.  It seems best to provide support for 
Python 2.x and provide a patch for 1.5.2 if need be.

>pretty large codebase and if nothing else, introducing unicode 

Seem to me a 2.3 designation gives you some leeway to provide 2 versions
release perhaps 2 versions of Zope 2.3. One that incorporates work
already done by members in the community.
See links below for Python 2.x support and Zope 2.2.4.


Don't be like a certain company that stopped dos at 6.0.
Or did they?  The point is probably at some point in the future
Zope will become the Windows of Python.  Leaving us with
 Windows3000, Linux3000, and Python3000(W/Zope interface:-)
Go Guido, Go Guido, it's your birthday!  Long live the command line interface!
