I don't think you'll ever manage referential integrity with ZODB. It's a
Persistent Object Store, not a relational database. I really don't know why
people have a problem with this concept, and feel the need to enforce some
other meaningless (in this context) construct onto it. (Actually I do know
why, but, I feel the need to postulate).
Perhaps we should rename it from ZODB to ZOS, to stop people from drawing that
inference. People might think it was an operating system I suppose.
