Somebody has to own the domain :)  I'm got space available for a CZAN
mirror if necessary. It might be something that benefits the Python
community as a whole, not just Zope users, in which case 'CZAN' is not
entirely correct ;)  But hey, let's start somewhere right?

Such a product would allow users to access CZAN from within the Zope
Interface and work a bit like MS' Windows Update (if you're not familiar
with it, it rules for upgrading Windows machines over the Internet).
Install new products, new versions, hotfixes. Upgrade Zope itself.
Integrate with ZEO etc. to upgrade clusters of machines all at once...

Just thinking out loud here :)  Anyone from DigiCool care to comment?
How much of it is already in the pipeline?
