I like TAL and Chameleon's subtle improvements on it. I was recently attending a Python users group meeting presentation on Pyramid. The presenter, who strongly liked jinja2, disparaged ZPT/Chameleon with (what I sensed was) an "anti-Zopism" straw-man. Some folks in other Python dev communities tend to have unfortunate strong opinions about Zope, still. Some folks tend to think that technology choice is a cultural revolution of some kind where the incumbent must be strung up in a public square, which is off-putting to pragmatists. And IMHO, other communities are better off learning from Zope's hits and misses (past and present) than exhuming Oliver Cromwell for symbolic torture. I'm not sure that jinja2 and similar are really better for readability or separation of concerns versus TAL, and if some folks don't like TAL for DOM/XML/HTML-ish output, I'm left scratching my head why push templating like meld3 hasn't really taken off. My sense is that ZPT will continue to have its niche outside of Zope, but mostly confined to developers working in Pyramid development.
