What is ZSG?

I just saw this in the 335 info thread, but since it was getting off-topic (and lengthy) I figured I would start a new thread...

Until the ZSG introduction BMW will offer Sport Automatic Steptronic Gearbox (SASG) with shift paddles in some models (debut in facelifted Z4 2.5si & 3.0si).
Does anyone have any additional details on how exactly ZSG works? Is it like SMG where its an "automatic" manual-transmission, or more of like steptronic where its am "manual" automatic-transition? If SMG, is staying on the M cars, I am curious how ZSG fits into the picture. Does it have a clutch like standard manuals? I really wanted to get SMG on my 335 convertible, but that does not appear to be possible.

It's the BMW version of DSG that comes on the Audi/VW models.

ZSG stands for Zentral-Schalt-Getriebe, roughly translated Central-Shift-Gearbox.

I doubt that the Z in ZHP or ZPP stands for Zentral. I think they have been assigned by BMWNA only for the US spec models.
