I thought Jens had written it so nothing breaks?

Me neither. I guess that CMF users can be expected to work in the  
file system.

It is probably just me on this list but I would appreciate a list of  
the changes in the architecture with particular reference to what is  
likely to break or will need changing. So far I've picked up on  
yuppie's stuff to support views and Jens' work on utilities. Off hand  
I wouldn't expect those changes to break existing sites.

I'm planning to do some work on the CMF next week, even using the svn  
version, which as Jens noted, is not what many people are likely to  
do. And now that I've got Phil's book I'll start working in a more  
Zope 3 kind of way.
