I didn't write that.  I think zodbdgz probably would work, possibly
with some modifications.
If nothing else, it should be consulted, but then again, writing
software is fun.

Note that the important aspect here isn't cross-database references,
but the garbage
collection algorithm, which is incremental and uses a linear scan of
the database.
