Hi shane,

I think the motivation people want an RDBMS storage beneth zodb is
because they understand RDBMSes these days are performant, relieable
and can quiete easy maintained.

I've seen Java implementations using this approach to achive persistens
using as example "Powertier[tm]" to explicit map oop data to an RDBMS.
I didnt like it because you have to map your objects each time you create
a class, keep in mind not to infere with others etc...

Would it not be better to improve the abilities of the Filestorage
to handle updates better? May be most of the storage system in C?
With logfiles like modern RDBMSes use to incorporate fast changes?
However, to avoid pickling/unpickling and may be to update on
attribute-change, we need the approach you mentioned.

What about using a real oodb for zope? Dont remember any particular
product name, but I heard something.
