Because my desire is to make individual "Zope" packages more widely 
adopted by the larger Python community and bring more people to Zope 3, 
I prefer PEP 8.  As has been said of Python, more Python code will be 
written in the future than has been in the past, I hope the same is true 
of Zope.   Hopefully, there are also more Zope users to come than we 
have ever had.

Consistency is good, but we have to be consistent with the largest body 
of code/group of people as possible.
