The classical answer: it depends on the problem. You may to a lot of 
cool stuff only with zpt and python, but if you want to use ZSQL a very 
basic knowledge of dtml may be usefull. Historically, dtml is older than 
Python Scripts and zpt, so there was a need for logic in dtml, which is 
not the case nowadays
