Anyone who has interest in ZConfig is strongly encouraged to look at my 
alternative method as it is alot easier to set up and use and provides more 
flexibility.  I'm hoping to see some cross-pollinating of ideas so your 
feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I will be making an open source project on sourceforge in the near future 
(unless I hear compelling arguments to not) and will make announcements to 
advertise it's existance (any suggestions on posting locations is 
appreciated as well).
