Sounds like there's a lot of energy out there!  Lots of new text to read
and absorb today, many ideas on structure, content, presentation.  I'll
try to come up with some ideas on the gaps I see,  then try to
synthesize an overall documentation architecture, then try to map the
existing and proposed pieces (and there are certainly many very
significant ones) into that roadmap.

My main competition for time, aside from little things like my day job
and trying to have a life, is the ongoing exercize of trying to build my
competence as a Zopista. 

<un-PC> Which brings me to an off-topic issue:  are we Zopistas,
Zopesters, Zopeheads, Zopers (I think I've seen all those go by)?  I
find Zopista has the most cachet, sort of that bandito image, though I
expect that Zopisto would be more fitting judging by the Zope/ZDP
contributor names.  Should have  started a new thread here...</un-PC>
