Yup, I'm game. The 1,000 file limit is pretty tough. A did a basic test
doing an install of ore.wsgiref, and ended up with 3000+ files without
My mini-strategy is to
* get easy_install zope.component
* get martian working
* implement custom traversal
* fork grok :) doh!
After looking at the Datastore it may yet be possible to do
object-based publishing by replacing persistence. I'll have to catch up
with you at Google I/O.
