I'm trying to figure out how to mount my main storage read-only
with zope 2.7.0.  I'm starting to suspect that it's impossible.
I tried a few things below....

---------------------------------------------
ATTEMPT #1.

I find this in the zope.conf examples:

# Directive: read-only-database
#
# Description:
#     This causes the main Zope FileStorage-backed ZODB to be opened in
#     read-only mode.
#
# Default: off
#
# Example:
#
#     read-only-database on


... so I uncomment that line and restart.
Zope starts OK but the database is evidently still writeable, I can
still change anything.

Is this a bug in the zope.conf examples, or a bug in zope?


-------------------------------------------------
ATTEMPT #2.

Apparently there is another read-only flag within each database config
section. So, I try that. In my zope.conf:

<zodb_db main>
    # Main FileStorage database
    cache-size 20000
    mount-point /
    <filestorage>
      path $INSTANCE/var/Data.fs
      read-only on
    </filestorage>
</zodb_db>


When I start with this config, zope dies during product initialization
which apparently wants to commit:

-----------------------------------------

So, am I just plain S.O.L.?  Is this impossible?


(Note: a similar message was sent earlier to dirstorage-users, but
experimentation has shown me that the storage implementation
doesn't seem to matter... i get the same result with filestorage,
directorystorage, or clientstorage.)
