I feel the same way - I have just today been forced into buying 
the Egenix solution, because I had to upgrade to get 2.7 and plone 2.

I originally started using ZOPE because I could use it as a web front-end 
for my MS Access databases. I sort of feel deceived that that functionality 
was there and has been dropped. Now if I want to distribute my solution
to client sites, I have to tell them it's all opensource - *except* ...

I wonder if the money many of us have put into Egenix could have 
better gone to zope corp to build this for us, then keep the ZOPE 
solution complete. Isn't that a possible model for you?
