But wait!  You _CAN_ run things side by side if you front end with
Apache, and migrate towards the true religion!  It's great!

(and makes for truly hacked-together, piecemeal WWW sites, like the
ones I'm doing to demo/experiment with OSS WWW-based bioinformatics
technologies all at the same time... now if only they'd have done Zope
in the first place...).

The point being that Zope can be insiduously incorporated into a WWW
site, much in the same way that MS products can infiltrate an
otherwise pristine office environment.
