Well, you still need a seperate daemon for the storage server, but 
granted, that's one less than the usual setup of Apache - Zope Web - 
Zope Storage

Well, I assume they'll keep the same client cache for as long as the 
child process exists?

I guess it would be nice to find a way that child process could use a 
persistent ZEO client cache, right? Does each child process need to have 
it's own client cache (I'm guessing the way Pascal currently has it 
working, that'll be the case, whether it's needed or not...) and if it 
doesn't, is there any way the processes could share the cache in the 
"mod_zope" setup?
