I don't remember exactly but code from connection_leak branch or
something like that didn't work for me too.

Nice, but I'm curious how fast is this and how it deals with
complicated procedures etc. I have a lot of logic in database sometimes.

But 'particular connection object' still may have (and usually has) few
oracle connections opened.

Not necessarily because some other connections for 'particular
connection object' may be broken, so script may execute correctly while
different person will execute same ZSQLMethod and will get errors.

If this works then it is acceptable solution :)

I checked a bit setup with session shared between ZEO Clients and with
Pound load balancer. Worked really nice. Restart of one zeo client
was invisible for the user.

We have cxOracleDA for Zope 2.8.x but it was not tested too much yet.
