Usually, I am convinced that well chosen names form the largest part of the required documentation. That's why I sometimes call things bugs (do not behave as the name suggests) while you call them accidental artifacts (different behaviour not promissed by formal documentation). In this special case, "p64" (and its counterpart "u64") is not too badly chosen. When one knows (in addition) that oids are 64 bit strings, one can deduce for what they are good for. -- Dieter _______________________________________________ For more information about ZODB, see the ZODB Wiki: http://www.zope.org/Wikis/ZODB/ ZODB-Dev mailing list - ZODB-Dev@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zodb-dev
