The standard FileStorage backend for ZODB and Zope is an append-only 
database.  It would not be possible to remove the append-only nature 
without a complete redesign of FileStorage.  I doubt anyone wants to 
take that on.

There are alternatives to FileStorage, however.  For example, I've 
tinkered with a version of RelStorage that does not save any history. 
It seems to work well, but I haven't released any history-free version yet.
