Sorry to miss another meeting, it sounds like fun. I'm finally out of 
surgery, so I should become a real pest again soon.

Still here, Tom! Ask away (though you're probably overestimating my 
skills, see below).

Actually, I have a couple of really general questions on Zope/CMF 
versus Plone:

1) How are they related at this point? I gather the Plone folks are 
incorporating the recent CMF in their work, so is it kind of a polished 
"distro" of Zope/CMF, or more of a radical alternative?

2) Would using Plone interfere with installing/using other Zope 
Products? (Does it retain standard Zope innards re traversal, 
acquisition, authentication, etc?) Or is it meant to be more like a 
shrink-wrapped setup with standard features?
