I quite like this idea.  I'm not sure of the practical applications of
it at this point... but it seems to have the appearance of a lot of
potential :)

Just out of curiousity, why not try to simply implement OQL for the
zodb?  The zodb (plus its libs/framework) is basically just a OODBMS
anyhow.  Using OQL would make this a little more accessible still for
people outside the python community.  I could see possibly adding a few
zodb specific extensions to the OQL implementation, but having OQL as
the base would be nice.
