Thanks for the warning Dieter,

but I'm managing threads/connections/sessions/POAs and a few other 
things already to expose ZODB objects through CORBA sessions.

I wanted the _v_* attributes to live for the life of the DB Connections.

Last night I found a fix for the bug that prevented me from overriding 
the _p_deactivate() method on Persistent objects, so I think that I will 
just do this:

class ...
def _p_deactivate(self):
temp_position = self._v_position
Persistent._p_deactivate(self)
self._v_position = temp_position


Thanks for the help though.
