Ok, I'll admit that part of my reluctance to learn Zope has been the need
to use the damn web interface to do all this editing.  So, what do you
think of this?

   guin:jafo$ df
   Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
                             4098      4098         0 100% /mnt/dav
   guin:jafo$ cd /mnt/dav
   guin:dav$ ls
   Control_Panel/  browser_id_manager*      standard_html_footer*  testsite/
   Examples/       index_html*              standard_html_header*
   QuickStart/     session_data_manager*    standard_template.pt*
   acl_users*      standard_error_message*  temp_folder/
   guin:dav$ cat standard_html_header 
   <html><head><title><dtml-var title_or_id></title></head><body
   guin:dav$ cat standard_html_footer 
   <p><dtml-var ZopeAttributionButton></p></body></html>

This is using davfs (dav.sf.net).  You can pick up an SRPM of it at

*VERY* nice.  The biggest problem is that (not suprisingly), you can't edit
the SQL objects through this.  It was VERY delightful for going through the
Zope tutorial last night though.
