I'm almost certain it doesn't, but I'm not a DB expert.  Please take this to
a ZODB list, as previously suggested.

I pointed you to Jeremy's relevant blog entry last time, which discusses
these issues -- and nobody knows more about ZODB than Jeremy.  If you want
someone to read it for you and reword it, I'm sure someone on a ZODB list
will be happy to do so <wink>.
