A comment to the paragraph below was recently added via http://www.zope.org/Documentation/Books/ZDG/current/Persistence.stx#3-58
Objects stored in modules but not in the ZODB are not persistent
and not-thread safe. In general it's not a good idea to store
data (as opposed to functions, and class definitions) in modules
when using ZODB.

We should mention that module data is the easiest way to achive server-lifetime data store. This is where you
would normally store external references (file handles or database connections or session data) that you
cannot easily reconstruct.
