I can't tell if Andy is being sarcastic here or not <grin>.
I'm appreciative of Zope Corp offering this, but...

In the reverse of the stated ZC concern over using Plone, my reaction
to this is, "but if we use a ZC commercial product, then we are
stuck waiting for ZC to fix it if something goes wrong.  I'd rather
we use an Open Source product the community can fix/enhance at

I understand the support concern expressed with regards to Plone,
but maybe discusion of the user product should be included in the
plone discussion.  After all, this ZC product is actually less well
tested code than, say, exUserFolder is right now...
