Two good reasons indeed. There are some types of data entry tasks that
don't map well to the browser. Rich grid style data entry just comes
if you want it to be dynamic and responsive. But if the data entry
forms are simple, I recommend you to check some lightweight approaches
for Web development in Python. I personally used CherryPy
(www.cherrypy.org); you can also check Quixote or Snakelets. All three
are much lighter than Zope. CherryPy in particular is extremely light
and easy to work with, and includes a reasonably powerful embedded
Python-based webserver; it's not Apache, but it's much easier to set
up. And all three options are free.
