Your position appeared to be that it's a good idea to tempt new users
into using "plain zope 2". I assert that it's not because zope.org is
dead, the docs have barely changed in 7 years and, in a specific case,
LocalFS has become unmaintained and doesn't work in current Zope 2 releases.

Because it's broken on current Zope releases and no-one is maintaining
it, meaning every person who wants to use it has to individually patch
it and maintain their own local copy.
