as the primary author of cmf backtalk i can say it isn't ready yet... but i 
can say definitively it will be ready before nzo :-)

no actually you can't check out sample data as there is none nor would it 
matter if you could, without access to the current code. As i've been trying 
to assist on the nzo project, i've found the biggest hurdle (over the course 
of months of correspondence) to be lack of zope corp assistance in getting 
these things and commit access to the cvs repository.
