You're always asking too much. ;-) There is the problem I complain a good year 
before: a current implementation of the Stored Procedures for Zope DOES NOT 
understand DateTime. They are also can not be overloaded (big pain!!!) and 
has a lot IN/OUT caveats. The semi-same problem is with ZSQLMethod: it does 
not understand long types. I even posted this to a collector and it is 
probably till now in pending status. ;-( And ZSQLMethods does not understand 

So in general, we use 19'th century technology which STILL fits into modern 
needs, but very soon will not if nothing changes...

I guess, like to_date() in PL/SQL. ;-)
