Let me guess... they haven't packed the database since the original
developer left the company?

Zope scales quite well, in my experience... I'd wager whatever problem
you're having is probably some easily-fixed configuration or maintenance
issue.  It may be too late to argue that point, but I think you'd find a
lot more help being offered if the client were interested in fixing the
problem instead of blaming the software.  Not your fault, probably...

It is native to the Unix world, but available on Windoze as well:

You'll have to inspect the objects... but that won't help you much
unless you have a decent idea what you're looking at.

But that may be irrelevant.  A recursive wget should capture any data
that is hyperlink accessible.  Give it a try and see how close it comes
to what you need.
