Ah, okay, and yes, in that case, I am in complete agreement ;-)
(the level I'm aiming at is just to be able to index python objects, I'll leave 
plugging that into the ZODB architecture
up to someone who understands it better...)

Yeah, unfortunately, the difficult bit is combining queries:
gimme the results where index1=='fish' and index2 is between 2 and 5kg.

if index1 is in SQL and index2 is in ZODB, for example, how would you go about 
efficiently combining results?

Well, I'm just purchasing my copy of Managing Gigabytess now ;-)

I'm available any time and date, just as long as I get a coupla days notice...
