The move to Centos or RHEL is due more to the switch from a development
phase to production.  I simply want the longer life cycle.

You seem to be saying that it's alright for Fedora to lack useful
features if the features are available in RHEL.  That seems to make
Fedora's utility as an upstream provider to RHEL somewhat less.

And, FWIW, it is almost trivially easy to set up python and Zope under
just about any flavor of Microsoft Windows from Win2K onwards.  Security
and maintenance are a different case, but I digress.
