      Script (Python) objects are one kind of logic object.  Note that
      the torturous form of their name (as opposed to "Python Script")
      is unfortunate: a legal issue prevents Zope Corporation from
      naming them "Python Scripts", but most folks at Zope Corporation
      and in the Zope community refer to them in conversation as just

        % Chirael - Mar. 24, 2004 4:28 am:
         Is this legal issue still relevant now that Python has escaped the domain of CNRI? Per
         In 1995, Guido continued his work on Python at the Corporation for
         National Research Initiatives (CNRI, see http://www.cnri.reston.va.us)
         in Reston, Virginia where he released several versions of the
         software...  In October 2000, the PythonLabs team moved to Digital 
         Creations (now Zope Corporation, see http://www.zope.com).  In 2001, 
         the Python Software Foundation (PSF, see http://www.python.org/psf/) 
         was formed, a non-profit organization created specifically to own 
         Python-related Intellectual Property.  Zope Corporation is a 
         sponsoring member of the PSF.
