Thanks for the pointer.

It doesn't appear that the ZpdfDocuments is what I'm looking for.
ZpdfDocument seems to render PDF on the fly from structured text or HTML. I
was interested in simply storing an existing PDF file in the ZODB and making
it available for download.

Is there a reason to make a PDF ZClass? Would it make things easier?
