Imagine for a moment that you run an architects firm and that you are in
the last of several business meetings with the board and executive staff of
a bank, discussing the terms of their new corporate building. Your firm is
already under contract; they have explained you their mission statement;
areas executives have explained their needs; they even have told you about
some of their new ideas based on which they plan to beat their competition,
and how the new headquarters must show off those new strenghts of the
company. The meeting is about to finish and suddenly the CEO asks you:

- So, when do you think we'll have the plans finished?
- In a month - you respond
- Just a month?!
- Yes! It happens that we just finished another bank's headquarters a
couple of weeks ago, that took us a year and a half to complete. We
comitted our best architects and engineers for the job; they've been widely
recognized for their work in papers and specialized magazines all over the
world; and as we already have all those plans in Autocad and we've retained
the rights, we just need to hide what it could resemble to that other
bank - by performing some changes to them -  and we're done. You won't need
to wait eighteen months but just one. Isn't it great?!

I like the CMF framework, and certainly cmf.zope.org doesn't represent it
at its best. It can be improved.
