Yes, if you want to help ZDP, please, put it on the new ZDP site!

* I also think this comes closely to the things we discussed about the new
ZDP site. e.g. how these 'snippets' need to be categorised etc... more
info, you can find on http://zdp.zope.org/FolderTom. Read these little
paragraphs (especially about the filter option = your keywords) and if
you've more questions, just ask!

* If you're making a 'snippet'-tool.... then I think ZDP-tool is in it's
start position! GREAT!
