Hey, I've heard of that!  (Disclaimer: I wrote most of it.)  I just released a 
new version as well.  Information about ZConfig can be found at:


There's a Wiki page that discusses some future plans for it at:


In particular, I'd be very interested in seeing something like ZConfig in the

needed to make this appropriate.  I'd be very interested in comments from 
people outside Zope Corporation who've tried the package.
