This is the correct way to do it if you are using Specialists rather than
Folder w/Customization Support.

Yes.  Use a Folder w/Customization Support above your transactions.  When
you access TO.ds_object, the DataSkin will search for a DataManager and
find one in the FwCS, assuming you've configured one.

Note that this is mutually exlcusive to using Specialists to store the
DataSkins.  In the FwCS approach, you configure Customizers for each
meta_type of objects you'll be dealing with.  You can then give them
SkinScript, etc. to configure behaviors.  Also, this approach requires use
of the ZODB to store at least the "shell" (class reference and ID) of each
DataSkin.  But since your application is ZODB-dependent already, this is
not an issue.

Personally, I'd suggest that if you want to take advantage of ZPatterns'
database independence, you should instead restructure your app so that your
TO's are themselves DataSkins, stored in a Specialist.  Right now, you have
a very heavy dependence on the ZODB.
