You mean adapt, in the sense of declaring a component class as an 
adapter for a persistent object?  Sure, you could do that.

But you'll need to watch out for the fact that trellis components 
aren't lazy in terms of object references, so if your ZODB component 
refers to other ZODB objects that you're adapting to 
trellis.Components, you could end up loading an entire object graph.

You'll probably need at least the lazy-loading support of TrellisDB 
to do something like that.
