2) is it possible to tell zope NOT to store some things in the database
(for instance in zope.conf-I've looked but not too closely and found
Why don't you run a cron job that packs the database, let's say each
month? You could also do a backup before packing; just in case you want
to undo something later.
Something that would be nice, would be to be able to store transactions
in a separate file before packing, but I don't think it is posible in
Zope. You may have to write something to do this.
