If you want ZOPE, the only way is to use it right from the start. There 
is not much you can write as "good modular reusable code", as ZOPE 
imposes quite a few constraints on the way things _have_ to happen. That 
isn't a bad thing! Its just that with ZOPE, you've got to grok what it 
is about to use it, and much things are different from the simple 
one-page-one-script-stuff you ususally come up with in PHP.

So better start with ZOPE right away.
