[Dev] history of ZODB use/problems/removal?

Hi Bill:
ZODB didn't handle all of our needs, and rather than modifying ZODB, 
Andi (who's in charge of the database) decided to write his own thing. 
You should probably ask Andi for his reasons. In my discussions with 
various programmers concerning ZODB, it seems like they are reluctant to 
spend much time learning it and would rather go invent something new.
