 From my understanding this is not only about serving flat files.

OTOH I think that it may be possible to make Apache to do this:

     "Let's add some ZCML directives that define how to interpret 
filenames in the web root by their extension."

     "The .zodb file would specify what kind of storage to open, where 
to find it, and what object to load from it.  In a sense, the web root 
would mount the object database."
