Just some quick thoughts..... (I have worked with both)
- This is not about Java vrs Python since that is a different
discussion. This should be about Zope vrs Enhydra.
- Zope has a great future which can be shown by Digital Creations
success, Zope involvement and activity
- In terms of getting a site up and running there is no question that
you can get a Zope site running up faster than a Servlet based site
You might want to take a look at the semi-old but still very
interesting Tomcat vrs Zope benchmarks
http://www.zope.org/Members/BwanaZulia/benchmarks.html (Tomcat is
the servlet engine behind Enhydra).
