That a bitflip would generate random data that actually did anything at all is a bit like if you shake a puzzle box and out comes a dinosaur and bites your leg. :-) > The thing is that a single bitflip could cause a LOT of crap. Mostly likely it would generate an unpickling error. But yeah, in theory at least you are right. I have no idea what the performance penalty would be, but a checksum would feel good. :) -- Lennart Regebro: Python, Zope, Plone, Grok http://regebro.wordpress.com/ +33 661 58 14 64 _______________________________________________ For more information about ZODB, see the ZODB Wiki: http://www.zope.org/Wikis/ZODB/ ZODB-Dev mailing list - ZODB-Dev@zope.org https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zodb-dev
