Obvious case of encapsulation abuse here. Should a file object 
encapsulate all the csv parsing logic ? (and the html parsing, xml 
parsing, image manipulation etc...) ? Should a "model" object 
encapsulate the presentation logic ? I could go on for hours here...

Anyone having enough experience with Zope2 knows why this sucks big time.
