I completely agree! One of the main reasons we picked Zope was the price,
and I don't see the need for an overpriced IDE. Zend did this with PHP, and
its one of the things that annoyed me. PHPEd, a freeware alternative was
MUCH better anyway. The only problem was it is closed source :(

Well Du'h :) Though I would suspect that most people work under a Win32

I would tend to agree with this. When I am working at home, I don't want
client's data flying about on an unsecured connection. I would also like to
see FTP support, to I can upload my DTML pages to the server as well.
I tend to agree with community built tools. They tend to take longer to
appear, but they usually have all the features I want! And of course, the
zope community is pretty organised (compared to most others!). I would
definitely like to participate in any community effort.
