HI Dieter

I had a look at z2.py (it's actually -r) so any way I tried (not too 

I have zeo running with 2.4.1 I have a zss and 2 zeo clients.
One running without -r switch and one running with -r

In z2.py the -r switch is documented as follows

    Run ZServer is read-only mode. ZServer won't write anything to disk.
    No log files, no pid files, nothing. This means that you can't do a
    lot of stuff like use PCGI, and zdaemon. ZServer will log hits to
    STDOUT and zLOG will log to STDERR.

Well when running a zeo client with -r switch results in no log files 
being written
and the log is written to STDOUT, but the ZEO client is definately not 
in readonly mode
ie I can create and modify documents.  (It probably means it can;t cache 
to disk ;-)

I need to track down where READ_ONLY flag is used.  There isn't an 
with the ZEO code, so unless the READ_ONLY capability is implemented 
higher up
in the transaction service, thenI think it isn't going to work.

This document http://www.amk.ca/zodb/zodb-zeo.html which is linked to on 
the Zeo Product page
actually mentions using Zeo client in readonly mode. I wonder if anyone 
has actually done it?
