This is like KSS question: why we resolve a question with the first way we
find? not the better one? Is the human being. But as Steve Jobs said some
time ago: only excelence people don't stop in the first way to resolve a
problem

When I meet Zope for the first time I was absolutely impress with it
There was nothing better to represent an object universe

I know that Zopers have their own way (this was discuss some time ago, too)
but my ideal scenario will be a minimalism Zope where everything was an URL

In this ideal scenario you could ask for an URL with or without parameters
as if you ask for to the browser

We stop this theme to wait for a Plone2PDF or similar. I hope we could solve
this in a simple way (I think if this needs a more complicated solution we
will have failed)

I only need to put a link with the PDF download to the current page! (this
don't sound to much complicated, isn't it?)
