My apologies if my tone was too harsh, but I have some pretty deep-seated
opinions about web application design, and I tend to express them with a
certain degree of fervor.  No offense intended.

I really appreciate you taking the criticsm so positively, that's a really
excellent response, and one I should practice more often myself.

I'm a bit busy today, but I will respond in greater length about why I do
not care for the "every URL segment is a template" design approach, and
what I prefer to do instead.

Also, thanks for actually reading up on Zope Acquisition and WSGI issues;
I'll try to explain where I think they go wrong.
