Start using it! :)

Nope, not yet. I don't have any plans for Zope 2, but I'll be working on
the Zope 3 side.
I guess that we need to decide whether we want to release the current
ZODB trunk together with the next releases of Zope (2 and 3). In this
case we'll need a release branch for ZODB 3.8 and switch Zope to it.
From my perspective, we could:
- Have blobs available and let people pick them up.
This option has the lowest potention for interrupting anybody's
operation of existing applications/servers.
- Make the existing File implementation use blobs
This would be good so people see how to use them and get blobs widely
exposed. Ideally, the Zope beta releases would uncover problems with
- Make new "Big File" implementations based on blobs
This would also allow people to see how to use blobs, but is a bit
more conservative approach as blobs are a new feature and we don't
want to destroy existing databases.
Additionally, we could change the existing skeletons for zope.conf and
zeo.conf to include a blob storage in their examples.
