sure. you will need to have MySQL RDBMS in ZOPE and write some python
scripts that suck out the data
and create objects from them. for your 'member properties' I would suggest
looking into exUserFolder or
CMF (which has portal_memberdata tool). Being a big CMF fan I would suggest
You may want to read over the ZODB Articles here
so you have deeper understanding of the ZODB. ZODB is the thing you
'/manage' through your web browser.
those are not files but objects. there is no SQL-commands to query the ZODB
with - there are some products
that attempt to provide this functionality. you write python to query the
ZODB -- its quite wonderful.

not really. you need to think more object oriented and less RDBMS when
dealing with ZODB.

I would suggest keeping your data where it is. unless you need ZODB
functionality like undo, etc.
