Pone is built on top of Zope, which is built on top of Python. It's all
pretty OO really.

Plone "talks" WebDAV - you can use WebDAV to retrieve and save documents
in Plone direct from apps that support it, somewhat like a shared
filesystem. Plone, however, can potentially do clever things like
"merging" changes to the document, because it's *not* just a filesystem.
Of course, anything like that would require more development work done
on the Plone side; nonetheless it's very interesting stuff. The Scribus
side of the work shouldn't be too bad (for http:// URL entry - providing
a DAV "browse" dialog would be harder until Qt4).
