Ok, so this kind of discussion makes me wonder how much I can do 
without ZODB, or at least whether I can just use the ZODB files like 
any other binary files in the SVN repository. Having to write scripts 
to regenerate them sounds like a lot of ass-ache. Is there any reason 
why I can't just check in those data.fs files into SVN along with my 
Python packages, so that other team members can check them out into 
their respective Zope instances?
