I *think* it is quite a bit simpler than you might think. As far as I
know an event is send out when starting Zope - you can easily subscribe
to this event.

I investigated a bit and I think this would work:


  from zope.app.appsetup import IDatabaseOpenedEvent
  from zope.app.appsetup.bootstrap import getInformationFromEvent

  def process_started(event):
      db, connection, root, root_folder = getInformationFromEvent(event)
      print 'DDD', event, db


  from zope.app.appsetup import IProcessStartingEvent

  def process_started(event):
      print 'EEE', event # Do your stuff

There's a small issue with the second event subscriber; it is only fired
in projects build with the grokproject tool *before* it started using
paster. I think this actually is a bug in Zope. If it is I'll issue a
bug report for that.

I hope this helps.
