It seems to me that it could be usefull to have a zope method for passing python pickles to external processes through a unix domain socket. My thinking was to use this as a means to abstract a data base connection. Yes, I know there are zsql methods, sqlalchemy and other products to do this. But my thought was to have a generilzed method for just passing a pickle to an external process that could do anything with it. Perhaps it could pass a pickle to a queue that would handle the pickle if the site need some high volume handling of data.
Then one could have another python process listening on the socket -- ready to receive pickles for zope. Does this sound like something that could be usefull -- or is it reduntant with some other feature that zope may have for sending data to external processes? -- David Bear College of Public Programs at ASU 602-464-0424
