No, we would be using the object Datastore in GAE as we have used it
earlier. But we would definitely try to use ZODB instead, as we have had
good experience with it over our 15 year prior development regime.
As it is, we plan to place the necessary Zope components in GAE so as to
allow use of ZPT/chamelion, especially for TALES.
Our earlier customers were willing to accept ZODB... Hope the trend
