a) The code itself is quite well-documented ;-)
b) There are documents on zope.org on how the ZODB works and on programming
    Database Adapters; I guess there is even more, but well-hidden ;-)
c) Always try the zdp.zope.org (Zope Documentation Project) site for more

There is a product called ExtFile/ExtImage that does exactly what you need. 
But you could also build your own solution very easily, e.g. using Apache 
(or the new Tux webserver for extra performance ...) to serve the images and 
just manage the upload via Zope/LocalFS.

There is a tendency towards making more stuff available over the web (e.g. 
"replacing" External Methods by web-manageable "python scripts". This might 
make External (Python) Methods more or less unnecessary (BTW: Most of them 
could just be uploaded to Zope/the ZODB). But the full-fledged Python 
Products (or modules) you put into the Products folder will definitely not go 
away soon. That's how most of the major Zope applications are developed.
