feel I have enough time to devote to trying to compete in that area, since
my take on it is very much against the grain of the popular approach.

I'm not complaining about you personally tuning out; it's just that I ended
up being a sole advocate for stuff I thought Zope would need in order to
utilize the template standard as a basis for views, without being certain
of the details or whether you (i.e. zope.com and .org) actually cared (due
to you having disappeared after your initial comment). (This of course
also goes for other view-based and "active page" frameworks that have
similar issues, but whose architects weren't around to comment in the first

I'd be especially interested in your thoughts on my current "API for
finding plugins" posts on the distutils-sig, as I gather you're working in
that area with Zope at the moment.
