Okay. I tried on Gadfly in order to test my SQL statements.
But are Product's *.py files (those in the "Products" FS directory) also 
restricted that way?

I really want to use ZPT+Python on the thing I am developping.
Is there any hint to have:
   "ZQSL Methods" -> "Python Sscript" -> "ZPT"

Thank you for all.
I am going to have a look at the ZOpe book, as you said.
