Right, that was what I was hoping you didn't mean ;-)
That's useless then.

Of course, it's having the snot hammered out of it by what I would guess 
is the largest group of ZODB users who run backups of any sort.

Myself, I use it to reconstitute a 20GB database on a backup server once 
an hour, followed by running one of the myriad of zodb checker tools on 
the backup.

It may not be actively supported but I'd wager we as a community would 
find out soon enough if it developed problems.

I'll reiterate that in the universe the majority of zodb users inhabit, 
dropping repozo is simply not an acceptable thing to do.
