not really a discussion, more of a caveat, on some 64k machines 
(observed on ubuntu and centos), BTrees compile wonky and don't persist 
values under 2.5.  With grok, your app will start once fine, and die 
inside zope.generations on second start.

got bitten by this in a deployment a few weeks back. using python 2.4 
worked fine
