Yes, attracting new blood is crucial. I don't think "new" and "challenge" is
as important as stable, productive, documented, empowering ... but there's a
balance, and without new members coming in, the point is moot.

I was overstating for effect, and certainly agree that there are parts of
Zope that need replacement. My feeling is just that emphasizing the "aging" vs
"cool" distinction is counterproductive.
