True! I had a Zope with a Huge Data.fs that took up to 5 mins to
(re)start. With ZEO, this time dropped to between 2 and 10 secs.

I highly recommend ZEO for development. It's great for debugging too,
when you have to freeze debug Zope (i.e. inside pdb or gdb), you can
keep another ZEO client running.
