I've been trying to follow this discussion (though discussions on z3-base  
tend to become ridiculously long). I quite like Joel Moxley's idea about  
shpping Zope 3 CA, and then Zope 3 Server that sits on top of the CA.  
Actually, the way it looks like this is going is simply to break Zope 3  
into smaller pieces (probably as eggs), from which we will be at liberty  
to choose what we want. At the same time, I'm hoping that more pieces of  
the Zope3-the-appserver will be folded back into Zope2.

I think that Jim's "Zope 5" (bad name) idea is basically where we've been  
going with Zope 2.8+ and Five, so I'm not really seeing any cause for  
alarm. I may be missing some subtler points here... but in general, more  
componentisation is probably better as far as I'm conerned.

What are your thoughts?
