There is an interesting subtlety here. I think of Zope (or
applications built using Zope components) as applications that can be
run as one or more daemons. To me, a daemon is a particular instance
of an application, not the application itself. I (and my SAs) prefer
to separate software installation from configuration. We prefer that
these be 2 steps. We often run multiple daemons of the same
application on a single machine. The configuration of these daemons
(and cron jobs, and so on) are controlled from a central
configuration database that is mostly independent of the software
install. We don't want deamons installed automatically when an
application is installed.
