ZSQLCatalog is an extension to the traditional Zope ZCatalog and Indexes.
It currently implements an Index which uses an SQL database as external storage.
It allows to query a Zope Catalog with a combination of traditional Zope
Catalog queries (field based, text based) and with complex queries implemented
as SQL methods.

By using ZSQLCatalog, it is possible to develop a whole system with an object
oriented approach and forget about external relational databases yet provide
to users the usual experience of SQL queries.

This Zope product was implemented as a subproject of the ERP5 project in
order to add complex queries to the Zope Object Database without using
an external database for attributes storage.

It is currently much of a "proof-of-concept" which needs to be extended.
Future versions will include greater flexibility and will implement relations.
