I think you got it.  My system allows one to prototype an app on your web
page.  Using server logs, you can see how people use it and what the usage
problems are.  Then a version of the web page can be turned into an
executable.  Also, client-server apps can be implemented with the client and
server displaying in different frames (example at click on "here" for client part).

I am now in my third day of testing Python support.  I have previously
implemented Perl but have not distributed it publicly (i.e. it is an
undocumented capability).

Zope would pose a number of challenges.  But, it is an interesting idea.
I'll put it into the hopper.  Thanks for your reply.
