You can open a connection to the database and use it this way. Here is an 
example code that works but generated an error ofter some calls:

    db = getUtility(ZODB.interfaces.IDatabase)
    conn =
    root = conn.root().data['Application']
    utils = getUtilitiesFor(IYourInterface)
    for i in utils:
        print "Utility found:", i[0]

but after some calls it gives an error:

exceptions.ValueError: I/O operation on closed file

Don't know why.
