User interfaces speak louder than books.  Start up Zope 3, log in as a 
manager, and look at the list of things you can add.  It includes DTML 
Page, File, Image, Python Page, SQL Script, and ZPT Page.  I suggest 
that no one should be invited to create these kinds of objects in ZODB; 
it's a road to misery.  We need rip them out and develop another way to 
fulfill the use cases they represent.
