Yeah, this is something I'd be very interested in knowing, too. In fact, this particular ability could make or break a community project I'm going to be developing with Zope in the near future. Do you mean like the pluggable access that ZServer provides? I imagine there would also have to be some kind of pass-through backend storage to the actual service layer (like IMAP, for instance). This is definately something I've been thinking about.
