Hi Martin. What you advocate would represent a milestone for the PF if any such 
inniative could gather traction. The componentization of Zope and Plone only 
brings the sharing issue into sharper focus. Overall, there is little need to 
duplicate generic recipes, authentication plugins, and other common 
componentry. This type of sharing could only increase colaboration and 
strengthen the software.

I don't agree with introducing another license into the mix however if this 
were considered. The ZPL is the license has generated the success of zope and 
is comfortable to zope developers.
