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).

Andreas already told you about my "Reference" products.
There is also a "Symlink" product of Shane.
And there is the "PortableHole" product that maps a complete
folder onto a different location.

No solution is completely satisfactory...
