Indeed, this is where we should focus. It gives you a totally clean slate each time, and I've been convinced by too much pain and suffering over the last 5 or so years, that a clean slate is a very very good thing.

If restarting a Zope client running of a storage server takes more than one or two seconds on "normal" hardware, I reckon we should focus on speeding that up rather than battling with the refresh stuff...
