The whole renaming mess has been unpleasant.
The real problem is that method has a technical meaning in Python
(and perl) that predate any usage in Zope.
It happens that Python Methods do not have the same properties as
methods in Python. This was felt to be too confusing.
But, Methods do not have any technical meaning in SQL, or in DTML.
So, it was felt that there was no large gain and much potential
confusion in renaming something that people had been using for
some time only to make it analogous to the renamed Python Method.
I still want to see a thingy patch applied!
Long live Python Thingies!
