If you tell me how to do it, I'll be happy to. As said, I asked Jim
before and he just said that the object-iteration APIs of ZODB weren't
yet "plumbed through."

I'll also state again that NO persistent class was moved. I'm therefore
not sure if the object-iteration APIs would even help with this problem
as they might only return persistent objects, not arbitrary references
to non-persistent objects.
