[zodb needs its own zodb.zope.org - agreed, good idea. Now we only need 
someone to write the text and help put it up :)]

We've been thinking about Grok integration for sqlalchemy from the 
start. It's high on my personal wishlist. I agree fully that Grok (and 
Zope) needs a good SQL integration story. Should be added to the 
tutorial as its own chapter, I think, once we have worked out what that 
looks like.

Depending on projects and people to work on it, we will get around to 
it, at some point! :)
