I don't think modular component libraries are a replacement for
modular programs, or vice versa.  They both have their place, they
both can be good or bad depending on the implementation.  (How's that
for a wishy-washy say-nothing statement. <g>)  I simply haven't looked
seriously at Zope3 yet, because my needs and Zope3's timeline don't
coincide.  So unfortunately any opinons I could offer on Zope3's
direction would be wholely uninformed.
