Thanks for the feedback, Jim!

+1 - I already mentioned this option as well. Note that existing Zope
3 applications can at least be made to run if you just let the
proxying code do nothing and return the object itself, I imagine.
They'll run insecurity, but they should run.

I think the Jython people already mentioned one, if I recall correctly.
I agree the focus should be on the lower-level packages. Note that
zope.interface was already ported at least some distance by the
twisted people at Pycon. I could therefore *imagine* focusing on some
speedup work by rewriting bits of code to Java, but I agree with you
that the primary, initial goal should be to get things to work, and
that performance work should be secondary. So perhaps this can be in
an 'optional-if-there-is-time-left' section, and going in with the
assumption that time will not be left.
Georgy, I suggest you go through my earlier comments again, and also
include Jim's comments (which are in agreement on most topics) and
work those into your proposal.
P.S. Note to interested by-standards, we're planning that Georgy is
going to be mentored primarily by the Jython people and as part of the
Jython summer of code project, not the Zope one. We are looking for a
good backup mentor who can assist on Zope-specific matters, though.
