Hi Tim,

   I think you will find the "product" learning curve isn't that steep
at all. The famous z-shaped curve has more to do with the lack of
up-to-date documentation than anything else. Products are the way to
go. It is very much like wriitng 'Scripts Python'. I am going to put a
simple 'boring' product on the zope.org site (if they let me) which
will show how to use zope and extjs for anyone who is interested.
Looking forward to your "proof of concept"

Know it is the way to go - seems hard because I'm an RDBMS developer not a Python coder, has been a long time coming as the stuff I do in the ZMI really is mostly "glue" - not so complex that the classic management issues of ZMI have bitten me particularly hard.

Motivation for going Products route is need to share (and thus improve!) ideas, and need to package code up for use by others as we grow our business. Starting point is currently the "Beta Boring" product by Betabug (Thanks Sascha!)

Am taking a week's break from my consulting gig next week, so will be on with writing this up after today.
