Zope is an application server.  Almost any kind of web app you can
dream up.  I've used Zope for a very nice administrative interface
to a massive aerial photography processing system and as an
administrative interface to another distributed imagery processing
and order fulfillment system (that I wrote in Perl, wish I could
start from scratch on that).  Like the other Sean (I supposed I
am really "the other Sean") said, Zope has a steep learning curve.
I, however, stuck with it and find it to be super useful.
