Well, bb.admin (or whatever name) is not going to be a ZODB
explorer alone.  It will provide few common admin tasks to help
the site maintainer.

1. Provide server information (Python version, path uptime etc.)
2. Integrate http://pypi.python.org/pypi/zodbbrowser or something
3. Pack ZODB
4. Catalog view

May be we can create a plugin mechanism where other components
can register views.

All the things will be available in another skin, which can be accessed
something like this: http://localhost:8080/++skin++admin/
