In principle, the ZODB allows you to place the same object into arbitrary many containers. Keep in mind however, that apart from the ZODB all other parts of Zope treat the copies as different: the have different URLs, different "PhysicalPath"s, may report (the same modification) to different catalogs (in this case, only a single catalog is informed, not all as you probably would like). >Is there a way to accomplish this?

And there is the "PortableHole" product that maps a complete folder onto a different location.
