Becoming Swiss (Einbürgerung) in the Kanton of Zurich

Has anyone gone through the process of becoming Swiss in the canton of Zurich? Once you have had your Einbürgerungsgespräch what happens? I understand that it needs to be approved by the entire Gemeinde. Can they actually turn it down for no real reason? Can you appeal this? Any advice would be welcomed.

The below is from a December 2011 article in the Aargauer Zeitung. The Bundesgericht decision would be valid for all of Switzerland:

"Die Gemeindeversammlung wird ein Gesuch nur mit einer Begründung wie "mangelnde Sprachkenntnisse" zurückweisen können. Nach einem Entscheid des Bundesgerichtes von 2003 sind Einbürgerungen keine politischen Beschlüsse, sondern Verwaltungsakte."

Put "naturalisation" into the search box on the top right and you will get more hits than you can shake a red passport at.

Top of them is this, which probably has all the info you will ever need:
