True. I wouldn't use ZEO directly for the original poster's "fat clients".
Instead, I would consider building a server, maybe in Twisted, that 
implements the necessary protocol and uses zope's nice features
like security, acquisition, etc. It would be some work but I suspect this
approach could be very powerful and pretty clean.
Alternatively, you could extend ZServer / Medusa to provide your 
protocol of choice, but that doesn't sound like as much fun :-)
