What goes in the database in the case you envision?  Is it
*content* as in content management as in how Zope did it,
or are you looking at a more traditional web server approach
where the database is just used to store, for example, user
data and such?

We've successfully connected Twisted to ZODB, as a quick
experiment (it takes, like, five minutes, right?) but haven't
grokked enough of Twisted yet to conclude what approach should
be taken for content management.
