One of the biggest limitations in my mind is the lack of a general query
language for the ZODB like what you get with most OODBMS and all RDBMS.
ZCatalog is improving, but it is just not quite there yet.

I do feel that the ZODB is quite robust, and with the added option of
berkeley storage along with others, you have several back-end choices.
