So, is it true that for posting (moving data from page to database) it's NOT
possible to do this by a direct ZPT-to-ZSQL method call? - i.e. that it can
ONLY be done via a Python script?  

I've been trying to figure out a way to do it directly, because it seemed
that if possible that would be the simplest way.  But if it's not possible,
then I can stop wasting my time on that path and start learning to do it
with Python.
