I had a quick look at zope site, I saw a list of definitions for the
'component' and 'interface' words, but as requested by the BDFL, no
examples of how these concepts should be used. Any pointers ?

I don't think these terms may cover the same purpose, still I don't know
anything about Zope framework.

There was a post in this newsgroup (by George Young ?) on
Model-View-Presenter framework with two references. For me a 'component'
has more sense in this context, I interpret it as an
'Observer/Observable' object, being able to be plugged to other
components. As an 'Observable' component, it should describe its
'Interface', as an 'Observer' it must implement part or all the
'Observable' components it may be plugged.
