MySQL can store binary data in a table, so storage an image there would be
no problem.

Read the Zope HOWTOs on retrieving files that are uploaded from forms
(lots of FAQs on this in the zope@zope.org ML). Then, just use a
ZSQLMethod to insert that data into a table.

No idea about Gadfly; it's mostly there to play with.
