I get at least a temporary "server not found" error when I try that name.

In any case, anything added on top of Twisted and Medusa are, of course,
not Twisted and Medusa.  Zope is added on top of Medusa, and doubtless there

be similar in purpose to Zope (specifically, content-management systems
rather than just frameworks for application writing).
