If you would talk about SQLite rather, Simon, it would look more
achievable :-) Nearly every Linux (and not only) uses SQLite in some
places nowadays, and any database which needs a server complicates
things. I understand, that it is only a proposal for users, but with
one-file-database it can be included as "#ifdef SQLITE" patch.
