People are attracted to PHP too. I won't lose sleep over that.

Time and again people fail to realize that Zope 3 wants to create the low 
level framework right first, and only after that add high level 
simplifications and shortcuts to have less configuration and provide fastest 
developer exeperience.

Of course people aren't attracted to Zope 3 yet because they feel it's 
complex. And there's a reason: it *is* complex. For now.
