[Zope] regarding catalogs on website,
ZODB or standard relational DB?

I've struggled with this one for quite a while, at least partly due to
my previous experience being with *SQL dbs.
I'm building an e-commerce site on Zope, and I've gotten to the point
where I could see some huge advantages from a management perspective to
doing catalog products as a zope objects, rather than table rows in
MySQL. But, probably due to lack of experience, there are things that
don't quite click for me yet. One of the main things is being able to
easily and arbitrarily manipulate large numbers of products.
Performance is another thing I wonder about.
Basically, I would love to get advice from someone who has built an
e-commerce site entirely on Zope, and any particular caveats they
encountered. I'm very frustrated at this point because from a
perspective of sense, products work great as objects, but not so well as
rows in table.
Thanks for any help you can lend,
