I wrote a product for Zope that provides a simple proof of concept called
the ZPM. It checks the product data on a Zope installation against the a
website (http://www.zopezen.org/products). Zope is serving back a simple xml
file containing the requested products information in XML. Zope could handle
the metadata quite easily, a regular FTP could do the hard work.
