Zope 3 does not have many UML diagrams, in fact none that are part of the 
repository. In part, I think, this is due to the fact that UML is really bad 
in representing component architectures. Sequence diagrams might be the only 
useful thing. I have tried several times to make UML or any diagrams before, 
and I have not come up with a good set yet.

On the other hand, I *personally* think that most UML diagrams are pretty 
useless (with expection of sequence diagrams maybe). I have a harder time 
understanding the design looking at them, than reading the README.txt files.
