Ack. It's called beta.

I do need people interested in using it to try it out *seriously*, though.

Chris hit quite a wall even when testing it for a while. I've got some 
data from that but the lesson is: don't think it's ready for (your) 
production if you haven't run it in (your) production successfully.

And there will likely never will be speed improvements over regular ZEO. 
I was a bit shocked when I looked at the actual slowness, but then 
again, I didn't think about performance at all.

(In standalone mode there is a slight chance that you can load 
read-requests off to multiple backend servers. Haven't tried it, though. 
And it won't be available in co-op mode.

Nope. The blob directory (even with regular ZODB) is a managed area like 
the data in your Data.fs. (You wouldn't go editing that data with your 
editor, would you?)
