Hello everyone,

I finally got around checking the Python site again, and what did my tired 
eyes see? Python 1.6 a1 is out and a roadmap for the next releases. What 
makes the entire subject so interesting is that Python 1.6 will support 
unicode and OpenSSL (in the socket, httplib, urllib). Furthermore, there 
will be a module called sre, which supports unicode regular expressions.

What does that mean? I don't know, but maybe we have a major Zope release 
coming up supporting unicode and OpenSSL (ZServer)? I would love to see it, 
since I would not need to use Apache anymore. Due to the incompatibilities 
in the Python code that would mean that Zope would also be backward 
incompatible; does that mean it would be Zope 3.0.0?

I would love if some folks from Digital Creations could comment on that. 
What is the plan?
