Hi- general question...

How do you know when to go with a relational database such as Mysql and
when zope is ok for data storage? I am thinking of doing a
product/zclass that will store contact information and related
information (and either photos, or path to file system photo location)
and want to be comfortable on choosing Zope for the full
implementation.  The traffic would not be huge...less than a few
thousand visitors a day if i was lucky.

Also, if Zope becomes a problem down the road...how easy is it's data to
export to something which can be imported into something like mysql?
