Most storages need a timestamp anyway for time-related packing. > (I understand calls to get the system tiem are expensive, incrementing an > integer number by one should be somewhat less expensive...) No more expensive than any other OS call. ZODB currently uses only a few calls to time() per transaction, so there is little to be saved. _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
