Is that really the case?  I thought StandaloneZODB was simply a repackaging
of ZODB separate from the rest of Zope.  It can be accessed from only one
process at a time, I believe, so I don't think it just "works like a 
networked dictionary" at all... in the way I would understand that sentence.

Without some kind of server running on top of the ZODB, and client software
which talks the protocol the server wants, you won't get very far.  

Or am I misinterpreting something?
