[Zope-DB] RFC: mxODBCZopeDA & ZEO

Dear all,

we have recently been testing the mxODBCZopeDA together with ZEO. While our 
tests indicate that there are no significant problems in this combination 
we think that there are possible issues to address and would like some 
feedback from those Zope users who use ZEO and an RDBMS-DA as we have so 
far no ZEO installations in production.

ZEO essentially replicates the ZODB across various ZEO clients. While this 
is fine for applications which are heavily dependent upon content from the 
ZODB, it may not be the best solution for RDBMS driven data or indeed any 
Zoep product that is dependent on external libraries. ie. might it not make 
more sense to centralise the connection object to reduce configuration and 
maintenance overhead and security risks?

Comments appreciated
