This could be a compelling point.  I've seen deadlocks in an app that
tried to use both ZEO and PostgreSQL via the Storm ORM.  (The thread
holding the ZEO commit lock was blocked waiting for the PostgreSQL
commit to finish, while the PostgreSQL server was waiting for some other
transaction to either commit or abort -- and that other transaction
couldn't proceed because it was waiting for the ZEO lock.)

removed from the project.
