Do you mean "Does Zope have built-in support for this?"
or "Does such a facility already exist for Zope?" or something else?

Because if, as you note, Zope is written in Python, then it
should be reasonably obvious that you can write a Zope
extensions/script/product which will do exactly what you need,
if one doesn't already exist.

By the way, Python has a "DB API", which pair of acronyms may help
direct your web searches for a solution...
