FWIW, Ape is also designed to be useful as an import/export mechanism. In theory, if you set up a mapper configuration for a set of classes, you've gained both a database bridge and a clean format for importing and exporting objects. I imagine that would benefit many kinds of applications. In practice, I haven't tried it yet. :-) > should we move this discussion to an ape specific mailing list? I'm happy with zope-dev and zodb-dev, but if there's a good reason to make a new list, that's fine.
