To be honest, I can see a lot of the use being more just as something
you browse. The absolute best way to acquire (not Acquire) ZopeZen(tm)
is through small simple examples that illustrate a single thing. Well,
IMHO, anyway.

Zope programming really is _very_ different to anything else I've ever
been exposed to - this results in a whole different set of patterns and
basic ways to do stuff.
