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...

Re. Kudos - deal!

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.
