one request: please don't do anything that skeptics can point
to and say e.g. "but zope wasn't serving as much data".
there were a number of comparisons on the BwanaZulia page
where zope had a slight advantage in terms of bytes delivered.
It may seem trivial, but marketing zope vs. java-app-server-X 
is an uphill battle, so every little bit matters.
