That's not a bad idea, though it's obviously out of our control.

I don't want to go down the road of *depending* on a SQL database. Right
now the Database code is still abstracted enough that the Mac port by
Tenon systems is still using the GDBM database. If I had my kicks, it
would check up on a variety of databases in the configure script and use
whatever was installed. This is along the lines of the Perl DBI code,
but would ultimately make a lot of people happy, even if it was limited
to a set of databases (e.g. GDBM?, Berkeley, mySQL, mSQL, ...)
