Which isn't something I want to spend a lot of time on.  One of the
beauties of zodb is that it tracks usage of objects, moving them from
memory out into disk storage when they're unreferenced (depending on
various tuning parameters).  I think using zodb/zeo here would help a
lot, or at least make it manageable.
