"Z.I.F Local Bus" Motherboard..........WTF is it?

No, that's not a typpo, a friend has a computer dated 11/94 that lists a Z.I.F. local bus for the Motherboard.
It goes on to describe it as "allowing you to upgrade your system in the future as oppose to replacing it".

It lists a 66MHz 486DX2, 8MB of RAM, a 450MB HDD, 1MB of VL/VESA for Video RAM and Windows 3.1 & DOS 6.21; a really hot system w/ monitor and 14.4 baud modem for only $1900!

The only think I can think would be one of those LPX MB's with the separate connector board that the MB and the add on cards all plug into.

Anyone ever hear of this term?? I know today that ZIF is a CPU socket, but this is 1994 I'm talking about here.

In other words, socket and lever. Just sounds cooler.
