Yeah, with a sadly, but unsuprisingly, CA-slant of "big corporate helps poor 
struggling open source by putting RDB(woo!) into it"

Anyone would think that Zope didn't have any RDB support before they came along, 
sheesh ;-) And I don't like the "open source, flat-file database, ZODB" comment.

APE is PART of the ZODB, so they're not replacing it as they imply.

So, CA open source a databsae that's loosing market share (Ingres - can anyone 
say m o z i l l a, although there's already SAPDB, MySQL and PostGres) and chuck 
a few thousand dollars to get a ZIngresDA and an APE schema for it to make it 
look like they have an open source story to compete with IBM's?

Or am I just beign too cynical here? ;-)

Chris - my poor de-muppeting stick is gonna be worn out before I even get to EPC
