[Zope] MySQL and/or ZODB

Hi Dirk,

ZODB is used for Zope objects (DTML, ZSQL, User Folders, etc.) and
probably should not be removed...  MySQL (and Postgres -;^>=) is really
good for relational data, and should be used in that regard.

I would say that a good practice is using ZODB for the Zope-specific
stuff, and a RDBMS for pure data.
