The ZODB can be used that way; the root object *is* a global
dictionary. Admittedly Persistent is necessary to make sure that
attributes changes are persisted; this may be nicer in Gemstone. Or do
you mean any global dictionaries are persisted?

How does Gemstone implement efficient querying or indexing?

I know the PyPy people have a demo where multiple interpreters share
objects transparently, so perhaps this is closer to what Gemstone

I'm not sure how this is different than using the root object to store
objects and ZEO?
