Yes. My one hope for keeping all of Twisted's features in tact through
all these changes is the fact that it has a few things in common with
Zope... I plan to milk that for all it's worth ;-)

As I mentioned in my other email, I think that less efficient should be
the default. _Usually_ you need dynamism, although it would certainly be
a good thing to have a more efficient way in some cases!
