Which part of ZPatterns are you referring to?  The idea is to
(generally) put all instances of a class in a certain table.  But the
implementation details having nothing in common with ZPatterns.

I was thinking there would be a default table where everything gets
stored by default.  A programmer then tells the ORMapping about specific
classes and how to store them.

You know, it might be possible to get a team together to implement
this.  How many out there would be interested in pursuing it further? 
IMHO it's not as much work as it sounds at first.  Zope being so
object-oriented, you really can replace one of its most fundamental
assumptions (an OODBMS) with something else (an RDBMS) without a huge
effort.
