No copyright-based licence whatsoever, including but not limited to the GPL, ZPL, and the licence on
Microsoft Word, can ever prevent you from *using* any software you like, in any combination.

They can only constrain *distribution* of that software and derived works.  This is a serious
problem for software authors, but not for people running Zope-based sites.
