Yes, DBTab-style mounts are what I'm looking for.

I took that at face value and assumed the rest of the crowd knew about
it.

DBTab's only limitation is that it has hard-coded storage types (most
notably lacking is DirectoryStorage).  The way I see this resolved is
that DBTab knows nothing about storage types, but instead provides a
mechanism for each storage to declare its configuration to ZConfig.
I'm guessing the way to do that is to provide a ZConfig schema for
each storage that declares what it needs configured, and a mount-point
just needs a valid storage directive.  Is this possible?

I would also like to see the mounting mechanism work outside of Zope,
so that you can partition a standalone ZODB application.  That is
outside the immediate scope of this thread, but something perhaps to
keep in mind.
