Interesting approach, however, I doubt this is going to work when one has to 
access an existing relational database - like in my case. After all one has 
once again redundant definitions. 

Therefore in cases where the database is designed together with the Zope3 
application, the transmute function could be an interesting approach, but in 
cases where the DDL-statements already exist, the generation of schemas out 
of the table definitions seem to be the better way.

Moreover I'm also curious if advanced table definitions such as constraints, 
checks and the like can be generated from Zope schemas.
