This last command gives me a sternly-worded, and appearing, warning:

**   *** NOTE: You probably don't want to use this template!

How big a deal is this, especially in view of me running said command
under the /home/ hierarchy where it's not going to -- I hope -- do
much systemic damage?

And what if someone wants simply to install Zope and the CMF, and not
yet make the leap to Plone?

It seems the "message" I am getting is 'all roads lead to Plone!'


No no no, my fish's name is Eric, Eric the fish. He's an halibut. I am
not a looney! Why should I be tarred with the epithet looney merely
because I have a pet halibut?
