The problem is not the Eiffel-Zope integration but the Eiffel-Python
If Eiffel comes with an open C API it should be possible to bindings for
(however they will look like because I don't know the API). Using Google
I found at least one project working on some kind of Eiffel-Python
Maybe that's a good starting point.
