I meant I hoped that you went to the bother of providing your own implementations of DB and Connection for more reasons than just because the ZODB DB and Connection implementations have a few lines special-casing z64. Or maybe that's what you were addressing ... in which case I'm glad it was very easy to write your own DB and Connection ;-) _______________________________________________ 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
