For those interested in Kylix, Borland has just dropped the price of the 
Desktop version from $999 US to $200 US. 

I work at a Delphi shop and Kylix is quite nice. I installed it and 
played with it briefly.

But it's a bad choice for building a Zope IDE because ... it's x86-only 
and only Windows or Linux.

Those of us who use MacOS X or OpenBSD are out in the cold.

The beauty of developing with Zope is that it runs on just about 
anything Unixish. Using Kylix would take that advantage away.
