Zopes existing 'find' mechanism lets you apply an operation to all the
objects that it matches - use that to patch your existing objects to
the new schema.

bobobase_modification_time returns the timestamp of the transaction
containing the most recent copy of the object. timestamping is
fundamental to ZODB. For this alone to work you will need to keep the
objects in separate data.fs files forever.
