I think all hope of anyone taking the ZODB seriously outside those 
already wedded to it would be lost if there wasn't some kind of 
supported backup solution. And ZRS is not such a thing. It's too 
expensive and it is not open.

The correct course of action here, in my opinonion, is not to make 
threats, but to try to encourage people to step up. I find that a 
positive message works much better for encouragement than a negative one.
