There's a mysql function, last_insert_id() which returns the last
generated auto_increment value.  Perhaps you could call that, or perhaps
there's a zope wrapper around the same function.

For instance, in perl:
$dbh->do('some insert query');
$last_id = $dbh->{mysql_insertid};

It's a common enough thing to do that Zope oughta have something similar.
