I don't really want to fill up an email with a litany of stuff, I'm

PageTemplateFile stops Zope from starting if the file they refer to
does not exist, rather than the 'at-access-time' error they used to
generate. When you have place holder code and templates in abstract
base-classes, this sucks the big one let me tell you.
