This is plain rubbish: relational modelling is a technique for solving 
problems. It cannot be a question of overkill but of suitability. If the 
application is suited to a relational model then by all means use it. For 
lightweight work use a lightweight engine like Gadfly or SQLlite. 
Alternatively, and this is one of the great strengths of Zope, use the ZODB 
if an object model makes more sense for the specific problems.
