I *think* this is a bug in zc.relationship, but I'm not quite sure.

I'm using ZODB3 3.8.1 (to get BLOB support) and trying to install 
plone.app.relations, which depends on zc.relationship 1.0.2. In 
particular, it  subclasses zc.relationship.shared.Container, and stores 
a zc.relationship.index.Index object in self.relationIndex.

Now, the __init__ of zc.relationship.index.Index, which derives from 
Persistent, contains the code below. In self._relTools and and 
self._attrs, there are a pile of modules, types and functions being 
stored. I think these are causing the ZODB to barf. Interestingly, with 
whatever version of ZODB that comes with Zope 2.10 (3.7?), there's no 

Any ideas how to work around this, or even why it's a problem in one 
version of the ZODB but not another?

zc.relationship.index.Index's initialiser:

                  dumpRel=generateToken, loadRel=resolveToken,

         self._name_TO_mapping = OOBTree.OOBTree()
         # held mappings are objtoken to (relcount, relset)
