Interesting question. I don't think is a common request. You might want to  
look at how to use standalone ZODB's in Python, although it sounds as if  
you're already competent with that. It may indeed be that you do need an  
ExternalMethod for what you want to do - shouldn't be much trouble, I  
would think. Why do you need several databases? Is it something to do with  
the size of your data?

Other than that I'm sure the Timbot will notice the post!
