[triangle-zpug] Duke Libraries site now in Zope

Our setup is not so large or sophisticated yet to make effective use of ESI 
and Squid 3, and because of the short timeframe we had to get the site up we 
went with a simpler approach. Our Squid is talking to an Apache server that 
sits in front of Zope, so is caching page views as would be seen by a browser. 
As our site grows (and if we begin to see performance problems) we'll 
investigate further how to take advantage of having Squid talk directly to Zope.
