The "Portal Toolkit product":http://www.zope.org/Products/PTK is
intended to play the part you are looking for.  The Zope.org site
actually runs (for the near term) off a primordial form of the PTK.
The PTK has a Link class which should be just what you are looking for
(defined as a Python filesystem module), along with a UseCase ZClass
(showing how to implement content types as ZClasses).

The SoftwareProduct/ProductRelease content types are *not* in the
current PTK.  I would guess that reimplementing them would require
a relatively small amount of effort;  in fact, we are planning to
do that in the relatively near future.
