Absolutely. Zope can reverse its path and move
its core back to where it belongs: Python.

This is what is going to happen if we really
get the project funded, and a few of us might
work almost fulltime on PyPy:
All C extensions can probably envision their
death, sooner or later.
And this is such a huge achievement, since the
amount of man hours saved in the future
is countable infinite. :-)

Probably a selling argument which should get
into pypy-funding...
