      The items in the sequence of results returned by a Z SQL Method
      are called *Result objects*.  Result objects can be thought of
      as rows from the database table turned into Zope objects.  These
      objects have attributes that match the schema of the database

         A useful tip is that you can access the column headings of your database table by calling <results

         what a zsql method really returns (the Result object) is a mystery;
         for use in python read
         for dtml, zsql method automatically returns this dictionary,
         which is a pythonized table, 
         namely a list of dictionarys, one for each row, 
         each row dictionary w columnnames as keys like {colname1:val1, colname2:val2,...}
