Hi all,
Can anybody provide me with reasons as to why or why shouldnt I use CST 
as compared to the session product that comes with Zope 2.5.x??

On my part I found that CST was a little easier to use and gave me more 
flexible and simpler interface.(just from an initial attempt at trying 
out both)

Platform: Zope 2.5.0 (binary release, python 2.1, win32-x86), python 
2.1.2, win32 to be migrated to RH 7.2

Knowledge level:  
Zope : 4/10
DTML : 5-6/10 (not very polished but can get the job done)
Python : 4-5/10 (sure as hell hope so!!)
Writing products : Cant say, I was able to modify mysqluserfolder 
(removed sessions and cookies and used Cookie Crumbler and CST... hence 
the question) to my own needs and it works but has some glitches 
(regarding roles) I hope to fix at some point of time. I know how to 
write a basic product but user folders seem (at least to me) to involve 
a bit more complexity.
