I recently looked into Zope in some detail and have decided that it's 
rather cool, with many features that you don't get from J2EE or ASP or PHP, 
etc. The Through-The-Web (TTW) aspect of it is interesting, and the 
documentation seems to infer that this is the direction Zope programming is 
going, with the use of ZClasses and other features.

Unfortunately, I'm a little turned off by the fact that you must edit many 
things using a web browser. For example, ZClasses were cool and easy to 
configure through the web, until I discovered that I can't recover the 
source to it as a source file that I can edit with something else. FSDump 
only does translation one-way to the filesystem and not back again. DTML 
can be FTP'ed to the server, but what a hassle this is.

So how do people go about programming Zope? What sorts of tools do people 
use, and how do you go about getting your code to and from Zope? Can you 
use CVS?

Thanks for any help with a newcomer.
