Yeah, both Philipp and I are aware of this. :) Zope 3 can't start 
following PEP 8 any time soon though, as it has tons of camelCase 
methods and it would really be confusing if we suddenly started 
introducing under_score_methods() in existing classes and modules.

Since Grok in some cases subclasses things in Zope 3, we figure 
consistency might be better here than following PEP 8.
