I'm sure this is true from where you sit, but you're happy to use the 
bleeding edge all the time ;-)
If you need to write "BBB code", then if someone who used the thing you 
wrote the BBB for will have to change their code to use the "proper" api 
at some point. That requires work. My point is that, for me, and most 
people looking for stability, Zope 3 is still changing too fast to go 
for as a solution. I think it's getting much better, but not quite there 
yet ;-) (see latest discussions about whether to rip out the 
pluggableauth stuff and bring something else back)

I don't doubt it! I'm excited about tackling Zope 3 as a user some time
