There is no problem setting that up, but it is plain *bad bad practice*! Do not do this unless you want to risk corrupting production data by experimenting and developing on the development system.


and you have found the fatal flaw with Zope:
it is really hard to separate programming/configuration from the site
data. Those two things are intertwined in a single binary file, the
ZODB and things that are easy to do from the admin interface (2 second
changes) take a long time to script.

I'm not sure where that opinion comes from. It seems you never considered any development paradigm Zope offers beyond the barebones through-the-web style which is less and less used by Zope developers.



It was my understanding though that you can use an external DB in
conjunction with the ZoDB, wouldn't it be possible to put my
client-entered data (form responses mostly) on this external DB ?

Yes.
