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 ;-)
