In French, I would say : "tu me fais un procès d'intention". Up to now,
a sponsoring has been asked to :
- administrative authorities that use Zope (and hence, Python)
- a big financial company that uses Python.
Nothing to Zope Corp. 

All what I would ask to Zope Corp. is indeed to let free time to Guido
and Jim so that they can represent Python and Zope in Europe.
They can give more if they want to, though. ;-)


P.S. Merry Xmas and happy new year.
