If this ever happens, it'll be a long way off. It foundered on 
objections among staff, and the people working on it haven't come back 
with another proposal. I'm not really involved any more.

Why would you want to do that? A lot of work for not much gain, as I see it.

If you want to share user rights, use LDAP.
Why do you need a database-agnostic back end? Just use the right tool 
for the job - in Bugzilla's case, MySQL.
If your workflow is so complex that there needs to be automatic syncing 
between Zope and Bugzilla (rather than manually updating each with 
changes), then consider simplifying your workflow :-)
