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. :-)

I'm happy with zope-dev and zodb-dev, but if there's a good reason to make 
a new list, that's fine.
