Many very helpful goodies have been contributed, and are available under
"Downloads". However, as we've seen so often, documentation is the last 
thing on the priority list, so these gems are mostly still quite rough. 

It looks like a great deal of value can be added to Zope in the form of 
ultra-easy integration of stuff that already exists, and step-by-step, 
"hold my hand" How-To docs to makes sure even the greenest Newbies can 
make the most of what's there.

Thanks for all the cogent comments!
