You could look also at the source code of my JMBoring product. It may
help you developing your zope python based product:
Some useful links, which I think are the guidelines you must read before

Some of them are old, but still apply to the current zope version.
I think the best way to develop such product is by using an external
database to store the data (for the zope interaction, you can use an
existent Zope Database Adapter - See the zope book for more info), doing
the interfaces with ZPT (Zope's Page Templates -> Don't use DTML), and
coding the logic on a python based product (forget about ZClasses)
