It's getting more and more offtopic... anyway, about SVN: everyone use fsfs 
now (man svnadmin(8)).

Second, if you prefer doing things fast instead of doing things right, well, 
you should swich your PostgreSQL backend to MySQL ;)

It's only a backend for Axiom - Divmod's database. As with atop you didn't use 
bsddb directly, the same is for Axiom and SQLite.

Zope has many components and is a very complicated product. Maybe first you 
should try to define, what functionality that imaginary nevow-based product 
would have instead of giving examples (and, as you said, filestore, SQL db 
and LDAP you mentioned were only examples).

And, about that development environment part of ZOPE... creating a web-based 
development environment for componentized Nevow apps - and, as I believe, 
this is the functionality that Zope already has, as you mentioned it - yes, 
of course, it would be cool to have that, but hey... can I use Emacs to edit 
textarea boxes on a webpage?
