Know it is the way to go - seems hard because I'm an RDBMS developer not 
a Python coder, has been a long time coming as the stuff I do in the ZMI 
really is mostly "glue" - not so complex that the classic management 
issues of ZMI have bitten me particularly hard.

Motivation for going Products route is need to share (and thus improve!) 
ideas, and need to package code up for use by others as we grow our 
business. Starting point is currently the "Beta Boring" product by 
Betabug (Thanks Sascha!)

Am taking a week's break from my consulting gig next week, so will be on 
with writing this up after today.
