I just finished developing the same module for both osCommerce and
ZenCart, and ZenCart is definitely a step up, but it's still pretty
It does have a separate templates/ directory at least, as well as a
couple of useful ways to drop in your own code without having to muck
with the core code. So installation of a changeset ends up being quite
a bit easier. If you do end up having to look at the core code,
though, it's mostly just renamed from osCommerce.
