road for two days.  I've spent about three hours compiling a blanket
response, but it seems that I have another two more before I'm done!)

Thought I'd try to address this one specifically.  The first two are
listed explicitly in the contract with ActiveState.  That doesn't mean
there can't still be weird interactions.  Jim Fulton has debugged a lot
of ZODB corruption problems caused by memory errors in, of all things, a
MySQL DA.

Translation: vigilance.
