current ZODB source that strongly seemed to imply its author (probably
Jeremy) believed it was already dead meat ("This argument is primarily for
backwards compatibility with servers that supported multiple storages" --
why did the comment use past tense if the current code still supports
multiple storages?  I don't know, and finding out would take time away from
other things; given that Lukas had been trying to get an answer about this
one for well over a month, and nobody was able to tell him anything useful,
I have to conclude this feature is so little used it deserves no priority
over other pressing issues.).

If somebody _wants_ this gimmick, the best way to ensure it remains is to
