I actually meant what would the /technical/ differentiators. I don't
think we're discussing competing with eGenix, and I certainly don't see
that as an issue - what is needed is simply a good, sturdy, minimal,
entry-point (which is my perception of the ZC product).
Is the source code available? It wasn't last time I investigated
this...if it's no longer supported, then perhaps ZC would release it.
Anyone from ZC reading this could help us out by looking into that...

Well, I'd very much like to do that - I'd like to contribute more than
advocacy to Zope, and I've not got money coming out of my ears right
now, but that I /can/ do.
