+ZConfig is a configuration library intended for general use.  It
+supports a hierarchical schema-driven configuration model that allows
+a schema to specify data conversion routines written in Python.
+ZConfig's model is very different from the model support by the
+ConfigParser module found in Python's standard library, and is more
+suitable to configuration-intensive applications.
+ZConfig schema are written in an XML-based language and are able to
+"import" schema components provided by Python packages.  Since
+components are able to bind to conversion functions provided by Python
+code in the package (or elsewhere), configuration objects can be
+arbitrarily complex, with values that have been verified against
+arbitrary constraints.  This makes it easy for applications to
+separate configuration support from configuration loading even with
+configuration data being defined and consumed by a wide range of
+separate packages.
+ZConfig is licensed under the Zope Public License, version 2.0.  See
+the file LICENSE.txt in the distribution for the full license text.
+Reference documentation is available in the ZConfig/doc/ directory.
