 Why do you say this? I generally work on sites where
its just me and no one else. For this purpose I find
DTML much easier, quicker, and less verbose to use
then ZPT. Of course, if we had a graphics designer
that would be a different story. Or perhaps I am
missing something about ZPT?

  If he is using and RDBMS (I thought this was
implied, might just be me) then the concurrent writes
will not be an issue at all, any halfway decent
database should be able to handle 200 or so concurrent
transactions. This, of course, depends on your
resource usage.
