No, my position if much simpler than that: Zope 2 is dying/dead, and new 
users shouldn't try and use it. Gmane's graph quite aptly demonstrates this:


You asserted that this is not the case, I invited you to prove this by 
solving some of the problems that have come up for discussion. You have 
refused to do so. I think that speaks volumes.
