Obviously there is something I have missed here.

If what we need is a system that can manage modules, versions,
interdependencies, searching, different comunication protocols like ftp,
http, webdav, a web interface and a Python client, Why don't we just write
it in Zope?

It doesn't sound like too big a problem to to make a Zope product that does
the above, well except the client, and we can build on all that allready is
in Zope.

So I guess that there must be something obvious that I have overlooked. Has
anybody got any links to where the dificulties are discussed?
