it all depends what your app is like. Can you describe it some more?

In Zope 3 you can turn off as many unwanted features as you like. So from this 
point of view Zope 3 would be good.

Why? You first use ZPT to create XML and then an XSLT engine to create HTML. 
This seems like a slow approach to me. ZPT can generate HTML right away, 
which is much faster. Unless you already have your content in XML, an XSLT 
engine is total overkill.

Zope 3 does not rely as heavily on the ZMI as Zope 2 and in fact all code is 
developed on the filesystem, so in this case it might be better for you.

I think you should go with Zope 3. Several projects have already successfully 
integrated their Pyton code into Zope 3.
