No - just using the GPL'd adapter do not require you to distribute Zope
under GPL. The adapter is just a "plugin"; there was an explanation from
RMS that GPL'd plugins does not require to GPL the main program and vice
versa; there probably will be newer version of GPL (don't know how soon)
which will explain the plugin thingie in details.
In short - only linking with GPL code "infects" your code with GPL.
