I don't agree that refresh is "crucial": refresh has always had "best effort" semantics, which leads many experienced Zope2 developers never to use it at all. Through bitter experience, they have learned that when refresht fails (silently), they have found that the hours spent figuring out why the application's behavior changed are much more expensive than the time it takes enter '<Ctrl-C><UpArrow><Enter>' in the zopectl shell. You'd be better off lobbying for faster restart times, including especially the third party products you use (a "stock" Zope restarts *very* quickly).
