well, zope is not exactly pythonic. it has things going for
it, but thinking of zope as a platform to write python
software for the web does not work very well imho.

i suggest you look into quixote, webware or skunkweb. quixote appeals
to me most, but i have not done web development after discovering it
some time ago. i almost look forward to it now :)
