    If you want to automatically pack the ZODB you could tickle the
    appropriate URL with a small python script (the traditional
    filesystem based kind, not Zopes "Script (Python)")::

      import sys, urllib
      host = sys.argv[1]
      days = sys.argv[2]
      url = "%s/Control_Panel/Database/manage_pack?days:float=%s" % \
            (host, days)
          f = urllib.urlopen(url).read()
      except IOError:
          print "Cannot open URL %s, aborting" % url
      print "Successfully packed ZODB on host %s" % host

       Is it really possible to pack anonymously through-the-web?
       Shouldn't everything in the control panel require authentication?

       I just checked with zope 2.6.2... authentication is required to tickle that URL.
