I was also trying to accomplish this a while back. I managed to add the
new class with a database connection and execute sql statements. My
class had some stuff like this:

        def __init__(self,id,title,dbconn):
                self.id=id
                self.title=title
                self.dbconn=dbconn
                self.times={}

        def getProducts(self):
            stmt = 'select prdt_id as id, product as name from products'
            dummy, components = self.exec_sql(stmt)
            return components

        def exec_sql(self, stmt):
          "Execute a piece of SQL code -- Need to convert to some sort
of ZSQL Method"
          db = getattr(self, self.dbconn)
          col_names, raw_results = db().query(stmt)
          col_names = map(lambda x: x['name'],col_names)
          
          return col_names, raw_results

Now it worked... but here's my problem/question... These methods, while
executing SQL, are not ZSQL Methods, which means I'm not getting any of
the good caching and other bollocks. I was categorically unsuccessful
adding ZSQL Methods to the class. Does anyone have any tips to how I
could turn exec_sql into a ZSQL Method?
