Here's a howto that highlights some issues to consider when looking at
RDBMS (e.g. MySQL, etc.) vs. Object DB (Zope ZCatalog) storage methods
in relation to type of data, nature of data and typical operations on
data.  And it's not really "versus," despite the howto title.  It's
much more of a "this is good for this, that is good for that, etc."
