Sorry, didn't mean to knock ZCML specifically. I meant to say that
use of XML is inherently buggy when people have to edit it with a text
editor, because of the bad syntax. I have the same gripe with the XUL
used by Firefox. Nothing specific to the design of ZCML (which I
haven't even seen).

Sorry, Martijn, none of these arguments have much weight with me. I'm
interested in improving the ability to do things *with Python*. And
that doesn't (for me) mean switching to something else, no matter how
many other people understand that "something else".
