Re: sysinstall v2
I had considered bringing up Zope in the Python context, but I don't
want to be the person who brings up lots of stuff he hasn't ever done
anything with. (And no, I don't mean to infer that about anyone else.)
Zope seems like it would be useful if the scope of the installer began
to creep into becoming a system management tool. Or then again, maybe
that is a good reason to avoid using it.

Hmm. There are both positive and negative aspects in regards to
Zope. On the positive side it might be able to replace Apache and
it would leverage the already discussed Python. On the negative side
it is fairly complex and hefty... 18MB in /usr/local/www/Zope.
The real question in regards to zope is... has anyone on our list
used it and if you have, what is your opinion on using it to write
an installer and/or package manager? Also, does it have a complete
enough web server to completely replace Apache or would it be better
to run it *under* Apache?
