Why do you consider "pack" disruptive? >Note that I'm working on a new FileStorage packer that is 2-3 times >faster and, I believe, much less disruptive than the current packing >algorithm. If you are at it: I think the lock which protects the "finish" test is hold too long. Currently, it is just release for a very short time and then immeadiately reacquired. It should be safe to release it immediately after the "finish" test has failed. -- 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
